It's easy these days to find out about college campuses on the Internet, but nothing beats hitting the road and seeing a campus with your own eyes: sizing up the dorms, eating a meal in the cafeteria, sitting in on a class, checking out the neighborhood, and getting a true-to-life preview of your next four years.
This new edition of Visiting College Campuses is your one-stop source for plotting your journey, whether it's by plane, train, or automobile. Our profiles of the 249 most-toured campuses include: Maps and precise directions to get you there by any mode of transportation. Nearby hotels, motels, B&Bs, and resorts for every budget. The best and worst times to visit each campus. Dates and times when campus tours are available. How to arrange an overnight stay in a dormitory. Information on meeting professors, admissions officers, and coaches.
Visiting College Campuses also gives you mileage charts by state and region, so you'll know exactly how far your targeted schools are from one another and how many campuses you can hope to cover each day of your trip. Month-by-month academic calendars let you know when school is in session, so you won't show up to find an empty campus. Customize your trip to avoid hassles and disappointments, and get the most out of your time.
