Touring Colleges

For many high school juniors and seniors, spring break means roadtrips to look at colleges. Jenna Johnson of The Washington Post recently wrote up some great tips; read the whole article, here, or give this summary a look:

  • use categories (“no massive universities” or “only a big university”) to narrow your search
  • look at virtual tours
  • don’t go to campus on their break – you want to see it full of people
  • follow school newspapers and other sites online
  • make a plan with your folks to break free from them for a while: this about what feels best for you
