Parents, we understand the overwhelming "family trip" to visit colleges where tension builds as you're cramped in the car for a two hundred mile trek with none of the conversation about colleges you’d anticipated.  When you finally arrive, there's the lack of excitement you envisioned, scowls, and "mom...stop with all the questions" moments that find a way to ruffle your otherwise organized feathers. Not only will The Campus Experience help to eliminate the tension and headache, we also help your child to 'see' colleges in a fuller, more accepting manner that creates a more productive college search experience.  

Students, it is critical that you experience firsthand the environment of various types of schools and evaluate the academic, athletic, housing, and social aspects for yourselves. Brochures, catalogs, websites and presentations by college representatives are quite convincing in painting a perfect picture to shape your opinion of a school, but seeing it for yourself is the only way to know if it is the right place for you.  Colleges advertise their best features with glossy pictures of sunny days and smiling students. Campus visits allow you to research whether what the college is advertising is exactly what will make that college or university the right fit for you. 

The lack of fit between the student and institution is far too costly to be taken lightly.

STATISTICALLY, CAMPUS VISITS ARE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN SELECTING A COLLEGE... even if the applicants haven’t visited the college s/he ultimately chooses!  By spending time on a variety of campuses, young people gain a sense of what is important to them.  Some researchers and practitioners have observed that the lack of fit between an institution and its students may be a major contributor to the low rates of persistence and degree attainment at many colleges and universities. 

To expose students to experiences designed to expand their vision and smoothly transition them into a hopeful future.

Don't just envision yourself on a college campus...visit one!  Picking the right college is about more than academics. Visiting multiple schools helps you to determine where you need and want to be.

College visits and campus prep experiences are promising interventions for increasing the pool of students who are prepared and ready for college. Expose a child to a brighter future by providing general support or sponsoring their campus experience.  It will be money well invested.
