Should I try and network with admissions officers or professors during a college visit?
Yes, if there's a way to do it without being too pushy. You can try and sit in on a class in which you have a particular interest and approach the professor after the class to ask a question. Although it's often difficult to meet an admissions officer unless you have a scheduled appointment or interview, if you do have such an opportunity, make the most of it by introducing yourself and saying how much you loved the tour and the campus. If you have met an admissions officer at your high school, send an email before you visit the school to see if you can stop in to talk. But whatever you do, be genuine and enthusiastic.
