Tips to Maximize Your College Visits
Campus visits are an amazing way for students to get a better understanding of what they're looking for in a college or university. But in order to get the most out of a campus visit, it's important that students and families plan/prepare ahead of time so that they leave with as much information as possible to ensure that they ultimately make the best decision for the student's future.
