Experience from Over 150 US College Tours
Janice and I have probably been on 150 plus US college tours over the past 10 years. Some with our children when they were doing the college visit circuit, others as a college counselor checking out schools we think our clients would be interested in attending. Other than the campus visits that were specifically for college counselors, there were always teens and parents around for us to observe.
Over the past 15 months Custom Colleges Visits has created virtual visit itineraries for a number of families both domestic and from overseas.
If you and your teen are undecided about visiting campuses in person, a virtual visit with one-on-one appointments (professors, students, etc) is a good alternative with the proper guidance.
