College Visit Tips
As you may know, Magellan’s four counselors frequently visit colleges around the country. Sometimes we visit colleges you’ve never heard of! We do this because it helps us guide students in their college exploration. In November, for example, Evelyn visited eight small colleges in rural Virgnia, and Debbie visited colleges in Boston. You can see our write-ups and photos from the colleges we’ve visited here.
While winter break is not the best time for high school students to visit colleges (because the college students aren’t there), for some families it’s the only option. On our Resources page, you’ll find a downloadable ‘campus visit checklist’ from the College Board that will help you get the most out of every college you visit! A “drive-through” of a college doesn’t tell you anything except what the buildings look like. To get a better feel for a college, spend a few hours there; eat in the cafeteria; speak to students and professors if possible; sit in on a class; tour an academic department; visit the dorms. All of these factors could help you decide if the college is right for you!
