Teen Insider Tips on College Visits

Boston College, courtesy of TeenTravelTalk  Teen Travel Talk is web site written by teens for teens who love to travel. Founded by parent and travel-lover herself, Luisa Frey, the site not only includes travel stories by teens, but also both a teens' and parents' discussion forum. 

Every now and then, Luisa sends me the link to a post on college visit travel published on her site. In "How to Approach the College Visit," the author, Elaine, gives us her take on how to get the most of out of college visit. Through efficiency and good planning, she and her friends/family were able to visit three colleges in one day! 

Among her insider's tips, Elaine suggests bringing along a camera. Whether it's a cell phone camera, digital camera, or a Flip, taking pictures (or video) of the campus you are visiting is a terrific idea. There's always so much to take in during the campus visit and digest once you're back home. A photo can trigger the memory of that moment which can be helpful as you begin to narrow your college choices and decide where to apply.
