College visits are an integral part of the college search process and it’s never too early to explore college campuses.
There is a lot more to planning multi-campus visits than simply booking group tours and information sessions. Having a detailed, day-to-day itinerary is critical and doing one yourself is time-consuming and sometimes overwhelming.
Since 2009, Custom College Visits has helped plan customized trips for many satisfied parents and their students. Clients have come from around US and from around the world, including India, U.K., Hong Kong, China and Africa. Depending on the length of the trip and the depth of each campus visit, our customized itineraries average six to eight pages. A detailed trip itinerary is created that can be printed or viewed online.
Included on the itinerary is:
* Colleges to be visited
* Detailed travel arrangements
* Detailed accommodations,
* Parking and contact information
* GPS coordinates and directions to each location (if requested)
* One-on-one meetings with faculty and current students
* Campus tours time and meeting location
* Information Session time and meeting location
* and much more.
Before we begin planning each visit, we learn as much as we can about your teen, so that the arrangements we make ensure that s/he comes away with a good feel for the culture and atmosphere of each college or university.
We pay special attention to logistics and make every effort to set up meaningful introductions for your teen when visiting each campus.
By the time you’re ready to leave for your college road trip you will have a complete itinerary in hand. The result will be a trip that runs smoothly, allowing you to spend quality time with your teen, helping them to make knowledgeable evaluations about each campus that you visit.
