Spring means college visit season for many students. Open houses, admissions sessions and student-led tours are great ways for high schoolers to get a feel for a campus. As you plan your visits, here are some tools for your "College Visit Toolbox":
- Hedberg Map's Professor Pathfinder series or Wintergreen Orchard's spiral bound College Atlas and Planner offer printed maps for those who prefer to use a highlighter to map out their own route.
- Many colleges offer their own mobile apps to enhance your visit. Check out each college website or call the admissions office to ask about apps.
- If you're undecided about whether to visit a particular college, try a virtual tour first. Sites like YOUniversity and GoSeeCampus offer an overview right from the comfort of your sofa. Check out a virtual tour before visiting a college to help you get "the lay of the land" before stepping foot on campus.
- For people looking to let someone else do their college visit planning, full service companies such as Off2CollegeTours and CollegeCampusTrips will custom design an itinerary based on individual needs.
