College Visits over April Vacation

We are ALWAYS stressing how important it is to go out and visit colleges.  Being on campus is the very best way to get a feel for a school and find out if it’s a good fit for you.  April vacation is next week (if you needed reminding 😉 ) and it’s the perfect time to go out and see some colleges.  Classes are still in session, so you get to see the campus in full-swing.  Many schools have events planned for next week to cater to the April vacation crowd.  I’ve listed some Open House and Information Session events that have come across my desk – feel free to check them out!  Follow the links to RSVP.  I’ve added some out of area schools if you’re interested in a road trip!
