Visiting College Campuses

Front Cover
Random House Information Group, 2001 - Reference - 400 pages
Features complete profiles of the nation's 249 most-toured schools.
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 one's 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 the next four years.
This new edition of Visiting College Campuses is the one-stop source for plotting a college journey, whether it's by plane, train, or automobile. The Princeton Review's profiles of the 249 most-toured campuses include:
- Maps and precise directions to get 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 readers mileage charts by state and region, so they'll know exactly how far those targeted schools are from one another and how many campuses can be covered each day of the trip. Month-by-month academic calendars let readers know when school is in session, so they won't show up to find an empty campus. Customized trips help to avoid hassles and disappointments, and allow prospective students to get the most out of their time.
