Good morning guys! I have already chosen universities that I want to consider next school year. Are university visits really important? Why?

Yes, surely. Visiting the campus of a university can help you make a final decision on the matter. It is also good to familiarize yourself with the place and find out how accessible it is. Aside from having its own amenities, a good school campus should have access to transportation and shopping facilities where you can buy all your needs without going out to malls. A university visit is also an opportunity for you to find a place where you can reside during your study. Although you university websites often provide information on all these things, it is still better to take a look of it personally.

Of course! Try to visit colleges while students are in session. Late August is a good time because high schools have not yet started but many colleges have begun. Spring break also can be a great time to go. Some kids like to sit in on cl*es and spend a night in the dorm. Administrators usually need about two weeks to set this up. (Always call to make sure that a college is in session before you go.) Get to the campus at least an hour before a scheduled tour so that you can walk around on your own before you listen to the presentations by the admissions staff. Go to the student union and listen to what the students are discussing. Are they talking about a wild party from last weekend? a political science lecture? a community service project? Pick up a student newspaper and see what the hot issues are on campus.

Looking for the right university can be daunting. As you know, finding the right balance between your course and lifestyle at university is essential. This alone will be one of the main reasons for you to visit universities. I is essential fr you to have a glimpse of its campus life, environment and a chance for you to be familiarize with the school.

I suggest that you visit your prospective universities before you take the examination or finally enroll in the institution. However, there are a few schools which offer orientation even if you are not yet enrolled to them. Familiarizing with the environment and getting yourself paced up with the culture are only a few reasons why you should visit universities. Through visits and orientations, you educate yourself with their rules and regulations and *ess whether these policies are complimentary to your expectation. Remember that when you are already enrolled, you submit yourself to the policies of the school so there is no way you could protest about their rules that are existing for who knows since when.
