Campus visits are a critical part of choosing the right college. Nothing else cuts through the clutter of data better than getting a firsthand look at the school you are considering attending for several years of your life.
While it’s ideal to experience a campus on a bustling day in the middle of the semester, summer college visits are still valuable. Campus life will be slower, but most schools have a summer session, and the slower pace offers unique opportunities.
Doing some initial research will help make the most of your visit. Most importantly, find out when classes will be in session. Colleges keep their academic calendar on their websites and provide start and end dates for each semester.
