Campus Visits

Prospective college students typically visit the campuses of the schools they are interested in during their junior and senior years in high school but it’s a completely different experience when the student has actually been accepted. While you may have accompanied your child on their initial campus visit, don’t automatically assume you should be in attendance this time.



Why? This time around, the campus will be seen through an entirely different set of eyes because your child is attempting to really visualize themselves living and/or learning there for the next few years; though you’ll always be in the picture since you are their parent, you won’t be part of their everyday life next year.

If the campus is offering parent-centric seminars, however, heading to campus may be quite beneficial. Your child will be off participating in activities pertinent to their goals and interests while you’ll be immersed in topics and issues facing parents WITH other parents. Spending your day with other individuals like you definitely beats walking 10 steps behind your child and trying to blend into the background as they learn about the road ahead, doesn’t it?
