Universities all over the country have finished up their finals and have concluded the 2017-2018 school year. The crazy thing is that the 2018-2019 school will be here in no time! At this moment, under 95 days away! So, as the college students have left for home, are traveling, or finding a job, new prospective college students will dawn campuses very soon. Here are just a few ideas so that you, a new student, will have a a great campus visit while hopefully you enjoy spending your entire day with your mom as she applies sunscreen and as your dad rocks the sandals and socks combo…
- Ask Questions
You or your parents have set the date for your campus visit to one or multiple colleges. As the day approaches, figure out some questions that you should ask while there. Not when do I get a free t-shirt but ask about the majors they offer, the student organizations on campus, the recreation that you can get involved in, etc.
- What are You Looking For?
Only you know what you’re looking for in a college/university. Try to figure that out before you arrive, if you don’t it might be a little overwhelming. Only you, the student, know whether or not you want to go to a Christian university, a public school, a trade school, a community college, or straight into the workforce. Knowing before you go will help you in the long run.
- Visit a Church/Campus Ministry
One of the best things you can do is visit a church or campus ministry while on your tour. Figuring out a major or finding the field where you will win the ultimate Frisbee champion is important, but the most important thing is your spiritual well being. If you don’t make Christ your main priority before you go, it will be difficult to make Him your central focus when everything is in full swing.
So, these are a few tips that can help as you tour your future school that will be home for the next 4, maybe 6 years 😀 If you have any tips that you found beneficial, comment below!
