7 Important Tips for Your College Visit
“No student should enroll in a college that they haven’t visited, no matter how far away,” Sohmer says. “The day you figure out it’s not what you thought should not be the day you are there with your luggage.”
Close to Home or Far Away?
Your choice of college setting can help you achieve whatever you desire. Nationally, most students attend college in their home states, an average of 152 miles from home. About 13 percent, however, travel across the country — or even across the world — to attend a “destination college.”
