How to Get the Most from Your College Visit

Seeing a room that you could live in, worshipping with students, hearing the roar of the crowd, and being challenged personally and academically— these are all part of a college visit. Some of these things you may be able to do from the comfort of your home through a virtual tour, but you cannot smell the air, taste the food, or shake hands with the professors.

Scheduling a college visit through the admissions office is the best way to make sure you can experience everything that you and your parents want, especially when you could be spending the next three or four years of your life there.

Schedule a Visit at Grace

While you can participate in visit days that include specific scheduled events for guests, most colleges and universities have customizable individual visit options that meet your needs and days that work best for you.

Grace College has several visit options that you can choose from including individual visits, Lancer Days, group visits for youth groups and classes, and Saturday tours. While you and your parents are looking for the best time to visit, be sure to take our virtual tour so you can see our campus and experience as much as possible from home.

A visit involves a lot of decisions, so decide what you want to do before you schedule your visit. Here are some activities you can choose from:

  • Tour the campus and dorms
  • Eat at the dining commons
  • Visit a class
  • Meet a professor
  • Attend chapel
  • Talk through the admissions and financial aid process
  • Meet with a coach

Additionally, you can spend the night in the dorm with a friend or a host student and experience more of college life along with Grace students.

Connecting with the students and faculty and experiencing college before you enroll can help ease fears and calm uneasiness and guide you through the transition.

Are you ready to schedule a visit?  You can also call 866.974.7223. To make sure we meet your needs during your visit, please give us at least seven days to finalize your visit before your arrival.
