How: With GOGREENTOURS & their Peers!

So for 2023-2024, Give a teen a "Gift of Travel"
Join GOGREENTOURS Green Teen Travel Winter & Spring College Fun Tour
When: FEBRUARY 20-24, 2023 & APRIL 3-7, 2023
Where: Orlando, FL - Visiting several colleges from Atlanta to Orlando.
Why: College visits will provide a more complete picture. College tours allow students to ask questions, meet other prospective students and understand the college on a deeper level. How you feel about schools once you visit in person may affect the direction your college search and application process takes.
A key part of deciding which college to go to is finding a good fit. And a great way to get more information is to visit the colleges in person.
Of course, visiting colleges may not be possible for everyone, but it’s a good idea to make the trips if you can. It can help you determine whether a college is the right place for you.
Get a Firsthand View
A campus visit is your opportunity to get a firsthand view of a college. A college catalog, brochure, or website can only show you so much. To really get a feel for the college, you need to walk around the quad, sit in on a class and visit the dorms.
Get Answers to Your Questions
A visit also gives you the chance to talk to students, faculty, financial aid, and admission officers. You can get answers to important questions, including:
What are the average class size and the student-to-faculty ratio? Are most classes taught by professors or by teaching assistants?
What is the campus meal plan like? How is the food? What are the options?
What is the makeup of the current freshman class? Is the campus fairly diverse?
What's the social scene like? What kinds of activities are available?
Is there plenty of dorm space or is there a housing crunch?
How many students are commuters and how many are campus residents?
Use this checklist for campus visits to remind yourself of everything you want to do once you get to campus.
Get Valuable Information
Pick up any official college material you see, such as brochures and financial aid forms. Don't forget to get business cards, too, so you'll have real, live contact if you have a question about admission or financial aid.
Student newspapers and activity calendars give you a sense of what campus life is really like. Check out bulletin boards to see what bands are coming to the campus, what parties are advertised, what internships are posted, and generally what the day-to-day energy of the place is.
Get Ready to Decide
Ultimately, it's your decision. Listen to your gut. Do you feel comfortable walking around campus? Do you feel at home? Do you click with the students and faculty? Is this what you imagined college to be like? Spending time on campus helps you determine whether a college is a good fit.
Now Let's have some Fun along this journey!
