You can’t judge a campus by its viewbook or website alone. A campus visit is an essential part of the college search process. A campus visit doesn’t have to be complicated. You don’t have to come with a lot of materials. Just bring yourself and your family, look around, ask questions, research academic programs and then write down your thoughts. We developed this Campus Visit Pocket Guide exclusively for your college search. Use it, share it, have fun with it.


National surveys state that most college students tend to go to colleges located within 1–3 hours of their homes.

Bring a camera and something to write notes in. (Or, let your parents be the conspicuous ones with the camera! You simply bring your notes.) You'll be surprised how quickly colleges blend in your mind after you've visited between 3 - 6 of them. Take notes. Rate the things that are important to you.

Read billboards, bulletin boards, and the local and college newspapers. Ask students what they do with their free time. How far away are mountains, lakes, malls, movie theaters, concert venues and coffee shops?
