You can read list after list, but the best way to determine the best college fit is to visit campus. And, when you’re there, take time to talk with current students, ask them how they would rank their school (you choose the category that’s important to you). Tour the campus, meet with professors if possible, hang out in the student lounge, have lunch or dinner in the dining center. Experience as much as you can and then go visit another campus so you can compare experiences. It’s worth it.

For tips on getting the most out of your campus visit, explore the College Visits category on Smart College Visit.
