Visit a College Campus

Evaluating your options


College Advising 101 Worksheet

Choosing a college is a big decision. You have many options, and making the best choice can have a positive influence on your life for years to come.

Make sure you have all the information you need and the right questions to ask to get the most out of your campus visits. These tours can help you narrow your choices and feel confident in your school selection.

Printing this checklist can help you evaluate your options. Make copies, and take notes before and during each campus visit. Keep a folder for each school, and place this list in it, along with letters you send and receive from each school, and any viewbooks, brochures, and other items you collect.

Gather and review as much information as you can before each visit, so you can enjoy the tour and the college exploration experience.

Best wishes as you continue your journey to achieving a higher education.
