Colleges Visited

Why do I visit more than 15 colleges every year? I’ve traveled across the U.S. and internationally to compare and evaluate schools. It’s an investment in my continuing education so I can gather real information about factors important to the college search, including:

  • In what type of neighborhood is the college, and what do students do outside of class? 

  • What majors are unique to each college, and how do different curricula compare? 

  • How robust are career planning and placement services? 

  • What factors weigh most heavily in each colleges’ admissions process?

  • How does the campus compare to what’s on the college’s website or in the brochure?

These are just some of the things I look for when I tour and meet with admissions officers. The college landscape is constantly changing, and there are a lot of things to think about when choosing the right fit college for YOU.
