If you have a high school student, and particularly if you have a junior, please arrange for a college visit! It's important that students try to choose some colleges to visit, and Spring is the most popular time to go. College visits are appropriate any time during high school. Some will incorporate college visits with family vacations. Others will take a week off just to visit one college after another. Visiting colleges can tell you many things about a school that you will only find out when you are on the campus.
Make the most of your college visit. Check out my Finding a College DVD.
Sometimes, I post something that really strikes the heart of my readers. An old post I had about measuring character qualities other than academic ones, was one of those posts.
