1. Campus Atmosphere
It’s all about the vibes. For the next four years, the college you attend becomes your second home. It’s important to feel safe, secure, and comfortable when you’re walking to and from your class or dorm. Visiting a prospective college will answer so many questions, ones you might not have thought to ask. How’s the food? Is there transportation, do I need my own vehicle, or can I walk? What is there to do for fun? What are they known for? Getting familiar with places like the dining hall, gym, classrooms, library, science labs, etc. can help you make an informed decision. Pictures, videos, and brochures can only do so much, visiting can help you understand a college on a deeper level.
