When Visiting Colleges In The Summer – Be Sure To Check Out The Campus Dorms


If you plan to visit college campuses during the summer months then be sure to do your due diligence and check out the campus dorms. If you visit during the summer months the campus is likely to be somewhat empty. Because most students will be off campus it is likely that your tour will not include seeing the campus dorms. If this is the case, you should ask during your tour if it is possible to check out the dorms. Chances are they will honor your request. If you do not have a scheduled tour and you are just walking the campus don’t forget to take a peek at the dorms if you get the chance!
