The best way to get to know a college is to visit! But if you can’t visit, many colleges visit Southern California. Below is a list of a handful of spring info sessions we’ve learned about. If the colleges you have a specific interest in aren’t on this list, check their admissions page on their website, as they may be visiting too!
We will update this post as we learn about additional events.
