Great Tips for Touring Colleges with Your Teen

27 Mar

For many high school juniors and seniors, spring break means roadtrips to look at colleges. Jenna Johnson of The Washington Post recently wrote up some great tips; read the whole article, here, or give this summary a look:

  • use categories (“no massive universities” or “only a big university”) to narrow your search
  • look at virtual tours
  • don’t go to campus on their break – you want to see it full of people
  • follow school newspapers and other sites online
  • make a plan with your folks to break free from them for a while: think about what feels best for you
