Let's Go To College
- The best way to decide where you want to go to college is to visit college campuses!
- Students are responsible for setting up the college visit. See a counselor for contact information of the college recruiter, or visit the college admissions website.
- Seniors have two days available to visit colleges.
- Students must provide the attendance clerk with a proof of the visit. Ask the college recruitment office at the college for a letter after your visit.
- Many colleges have events on Saturdays.
Navigate to the web page of the colleges which interest you. Find their event page to discover what dates are available for campus tours. Many campuses host preview events for seniors.
