Visiting on Parents’ Weekend vs. Visiting Any Other Time

While there are many advantages with Parents’ Weekend, there are some things to keep mindful. Like on move-in day, there will be many people on-campus, which means longer lines, traffic jams, and the like. Likewise, the school will have fashioned the campus into its most pristine shape, so as to impress the parents, students, and families. It is likely to change aesthetically over the course of the academic year. Lastly, it may be harder to catch up with your child with everything else going on.

Visiting on a different weekend or a random weekday will be an entirely different experience. If your child is living at a school where half the student body commutes and you visit on the weekend, the campus will be far less congested and you will be able to talk, eat, and see the sights with ease. Weekday visits are unique in so that they give you a realistic sense of campus life . Just be sure your child isn’t skipping classes to show you around.
