A college visit, also called a campus tour, is a tour of a college or university's campus. Prospective students, their family members, and other visitors take campus visits to learn about the college or university's facilities, as well as student life, culture on campus, academics, athletics, and programs offered by the institution.
Your 10th - grade is the perfect time to visit a college or university campus and get on the admissions office mailing list. It's also a part of your demonstrated interest college admissions representatives love to see from students.
A campus visit is also your opportunity to get a firsthand view of a college. A college catalog, brochure, or website can only show you so much.
