One of the best things you can do over the summer is VISIT, VISIT, VISIT college campuses. Get a feel for the campus and make sure that it is a place where you can see yourself for four.......maybe even five years! Make sure that you schedule your visit through the admissions office. Just like you don't like unexpected guests at your house, colleges like to be prepared for your visit so you can get the full experience from your visit. Don't make the mistake of choosing a college because of a family member, boyfriend/girlfriend or best friend. Make observations during your visit and take notes so that you will remember!
