Glossy color brochures and websites can only tell you so much about a college or university. To really get a feel for a school, you need to visit in person.
When you visit a campus, you’ll get a sense of the students with whom you’ll be rubbing elbows… and laptops. Along with providing a tour of the campus, most schools will encourage you to sit in on a class and speak with professors. You should also walk through the dorms, talk to admissions and financial aid staff – and try a meal in the cafeteria. They may even treat you!
While on campus, pay attention to the culture and pace of activities – can you see yourself in this environment? And make sure to visit a variety of campuses, small and large, public and private, urban or not… you may be surprised at where you feel you belong.
The back of the University of Redlands own Appleton Hall contains a mathematically designed ‘Echo Chamber’ that uses calculated angles to refract sound.
