HomeCollege PlanningEvaluation Form a Good Tool When Visiting Colleges

College tours require significant planning and expense to make them productive. Remembering what a prospective student and his family have seen and heard after visiting five or six schools over 3-5 days can be overwhelming. To address this problem I have developed  an evaluation form for students which helps them assess the pros and cons of  each  school  while touring the campus, during information sessions and while talking to students so they can easily compare schools.  The form contains a rating system for evaluating each aspect of a school’s academic and social environment including  geographic location, dorm life, academics, preferred major, sports, Greeks, costs, etc. plus a column for personal observations.  It concludes with the question, “Can I see myself as a student there? ….. for four years?”  Students find it very beneficial when visiting multiple campuses in a short time.
