Five Things to Do on a College Visit from Alexis Avila CEO of Prepped & Polished

  1. Visit school when it is in session, bustling with kids running around to and from colleges and picture yourself among them.
  2. Sleepover in the dorms. Hanging out with students overnight will tell you volumes about the day to day college scene.
  3. Really taste the food! You’re going to spend the next two to four years eating at this dining hall, so make sure you like the cuisine!
  4. Identify your academic interest and take a class in it. Was the class interesting? Were the students engaged? Were they falling asleep?
  5. Get to know other college students. Find out what’s REALLY happening at the school.
