The best way to find out more about a particular college is to contact the college! The ways that we recommend you contact a college is:
Attend a college fair.
Visit a college table during lunch here at the high school (watch announcements for upcoming visits).
Search through the college’s web page. Pay special attention to the links for new/future students.
Call a college and speak to a representative in the admissions office. They are experts on their school.
Go on a college visit. Most colleges have regularly scheduled tours of campus and some also have a few intense open house events. Contact the admissions office (by phone or email) if there’s not enough details on their website. Be sure to submit a college visitation form from the counseling office if you intend to be absent from school.
