Be prepared. Make a list of the things you want to see and questions you would like answered. Do more than take a tour and sit in on an info session. Take the opportunity to find out about things that are important to you. (i.e. prospective Art majors, should make arrangements in advance to tour the studios and speak with a professor.) Stop by the Career Center and check out what services and internships are available. Plan to have lunch in the dining commons to meet current students and hear the kinds of things they are discussing. "Walk the halls and read the walls." Here you will see student artwork, research projects, and upcoming social events. Pick up a school newspaper to get a sense of issues students are concerned about. Before you leave, sit and write down your impressions so you can remember them when you get home. Don't forget to check out the surrounding neighborhood as you drive away.
