College Visits

Juniors and seniors are encouraged to visit college campuses throughout the school year. College campus visits are beneficial because students get an opportunity to tour campus and housing; meet advisors, faculty, and students; and even sit in on classes. Students who choose to plan private college visits during school hours must complete the appropriate paperwork in the Guidance Office BEFORE the date of the visit, and there is a limit to how many school day visits each student is allowed. Students could also choose to visit campuses on open house dates, which are typically on weekends.
