Pro: Add it to your vacation schedule
With most colleges offering two information sessions and tours a day, even in the summer, many families cram visits to several universities over the course of a few days.
Big urban schools, like NYU, tend to have robust summer sessions with a lot of students on campus, so teens and their families can get a good idea of what the campus is like during the regular school year.
Plan in advance during your student’s junior year. Many larger schools offer summer sessions, so visit those schools during the summer and focus on smaller suburban or rural colleges during the school year.
