What a difference being admitted makes! Your hard work has turned your dream into reality and it’s time to make your final college choice. Many universities offer Admitted Student Days or special visit options for admitted students. Here’s why you should consider taking advantage of them:

  • See Campus with New (Admitted) Eyes
    How you see a university shifts when you know you’ve been admitted. The people, resources and opportunities surrounding you are now yours. Even if you’ve been to campus before, this is a great time to get all of your questions answered, experience campus life up-close, and begin to plan your transition to college.
  • Meet Professors
    Many visit opportunities for admitted students give you the chance to interact with faculty. Take the opportunity to sit in on classes, attend sample lectures or talk one-on-one with faculty and advisers about academic programs you plan to pursue.
  • Meet Future Classmates
    Look around at Admitted Student Days — many of the students you see may become study-group partners, fellow club members and friends. Talk with other admitted students to find out why this university has made the final cut and talk with current students to learn what their experience has been like on campus.
  • Experience Housing, Dining and the Local Area
    You’ll have the opportunity to see where you will live, eat, study and socialize — and don’t forget to explore the local area.
  • Get Your Financial Questions Answered
    If you need to learn more about financing your education, payment options or your financial aid award, this is a great time to connect with financial aid officers. You can attend a general session and/or set up an individual meeting.

Visiting what may be your university as an admitted student can help you make an informed choice about where you’ll spend this important and exciting next chapter of your life.
