In order to build a meaningful list of colleges that you’ll be applying to in the fall, it’s important to know how to effectively research colleges. There are a lot of free resources available for students on the internet. One of the most important places that you’ll want to visit is the website of the college itself. You’ll find some of the most useful information there. Sometimes, the websites can be a little difficult to navigate, but all the information is there, you just have to look for it. Other helpful places to look online are college review sites like College Prowler and Unigo. These sites help to give you a student’s perspective of what it’s like to attend any given college. Online campus tours are another great way to get a feel for a college without having to physically visit it. But don’t just rely on the internet for help. You can also ask friends and family member who have experience with applying to college for help. If you have time, physically visiting colleges that you’re interested in is a great way to see if you can envision yourself attending that school. Lastly, don’t forget to be on the lookout for college fairs and information sessions. You can usually find one close to wherever you live and it’s a great opportunity to get your questions answered by college reps and current students.
