Absolutely. You need a good idea of what the campus and student body is about, and the staff. You get to come and see how students interact with each other and how the staff interacts with their students. And getting to see the dynamics between everybody is crucial. If you aren’t into a small school, then maybe you should go look at a bigger school. But you’re not gonna know that unless you visit the campus and see what they’re like. Seeing what people have to say about why they like the school, what the teachers have to say about their students. It plays everything into the decision making of what college you want to go to. I know that helped me greatly in choosing my school.

¿Son las visitas a la universidad importantes? Jennifer Brown, Estudiante, Oakland City University
Absolutamente. Necesita tener una buena idea sobre el campus y el cuerpo estudiantil, y sobre los empleados. Puede venir y ver cómo los estudiantes interactúan entre sí y cómo el profesorado interactúa con sus estudiantes. Ver las dinámicas entre todos es crucial. Si no le interesa una universidad pequeña, entonces debería mirar una universidad más grande. Pero no va a saberlo al menos que visite los campus y vea cómo son. Ver la razón por la que a la gente le gusta la universidad, lo que los profesores dicen sobre sus estudiantes. Todo tiene importancia en la decision de elegir la universidad a la que quiere ir. Sé que me ayudó mucho para elegir mi universidad.
