Tools of Engagement: College Visits with a Purpose

Visiting campuses, in-person or virtually, allows students and their families to get a taste of what attending a particular college is really like. However, college visits can be tiring and details can quickly blend together. In this episode, we will address what you should do before, during, and after a college visit to make the most of the experience.

On this episode you learn about:

  • Why college visits matter and how to make the most of any college visit, in-person or virtually.

  • What is “demonstrated interest” and other important ways the college visit helps you gain a competitive edge.

  • How to approach a college visit, pre and post acceptance.
