College Visiting for Juniors

Today I'm talking to juniors, the class of 2021. Believe it or not, you're going to be applying to college in 12 short months. Right now, you need to consider visiting colleges and learning more about them. Whether it's Columbus Day or Veterans Day, several three-day weekends are coming up this fall that you can take advantage of. They're expecting you to attend their open houses, so please go to the websites of the schools that you're interested in and see when they have prospective students' days, particularly for juniors they are called Open Houses.

I would start with something local to you. There's no need to get on a plane or a train right now. Check out something that you can see within driving proximity, ideally with your parents to learn more about the schools in your area. From there we can take the next step to find similar schools that you can visit as well.

You can always check us out at, where we have resources for you about college visiting. We have a full checklist for you as you visit schools. We hope this was helpful!
