There are many different opportunities to visit college campuses this month. Some are overnight and some are just a day visit. What a great chance to see these campuses in person! Remember that you have two days for excused absences to visit these college campuses, so take advantage of those days off to visit. (some of these events have a small fee, follow the link for more information) If these dates do not work, there are alternate dates available, and you can always set up a campus visit just by visiting the schools website.
