College visits are difficult to do when you don't have the time or financial resources to do so.
 (especially given the COVID-19 Pandemic).
 

 While we do recommend you ask your high school counselor if they offer any college trips, you should also consider virtual tours to get a feel for the campus. Is it in the middle of nowhere or in a big city? Maybe in between?

ADVICE:

If you are looking to get access to a virtual tour of a specific university, try Google searching "Virtual Tour for (Name of University).

Some colleges will PAY for your expenses to visit their campus!

[These programs tend to be for rising seniors.]

If you can't find any virtual tours for the school you're interested in, email an admission officer. Show your interest.
