Colleges host prospective students on campus through campus tours, information sessions, and special visitation events. These are designed to introduce a student to the college and provide general information about academics, admissions, financial aid, student life, and more. Each college's offerings will vary, so check out the college's Admissions Office website for an overview of options and dates and join the college's mailing list to receive direct communications and invitations to events for prospective students.
Students are encouraged to start exploring colleges by taking campus tours as early as 9th-10th grade. Consider touring local colleges and visiting colleges on family vacations to experience the breadth and depth of college options. Ultimately, visiting colleges in-person helps students determine preferences for size, type, location, etc. and develop a broader understanding of college options.
