College Visit Tip 13 – Know Where to Park

College Visit Tip 13 Know Where to Park when on a College Tour

College Visit Tip 13 Visiting a College? Know where to Park!

Parking is difficult on or around most college & university campuses. Before arriving on-campus know where to park. Check with admissions or campus security.

Some questions you might ask:

  1. Is there a special lot for visitors?
  2. Do you need to put a parking pass in your car?
  3. Does the college validate parking?
  4. Can visitors park in the surface lots?
  5. Is there an on-line map of the parking lots?
  6. Are there meters?
  7. Do you need quarters?
  8. Is there street parking?
  9. Are there public garages close by?
  10. Does the college provide discount coupons for public lots?

In my research for this tip I found the following discount link for AAA members visiting New York City campuses like Columbia, Barnard College, New York University, Juilliard and many others. 

AAA coupons for garages run by Central Parking system

Don’t leave a campus visit with a $100 parking ticket, scope out parking before arriving.

The NCAA (National College Athletic Association) sets the rules for Official and Unofficial college visits. If you would like to play sports at a D1, D2 or D3 college or university be sure you know all the rules! The NCAA has a great publication that is a must read for all high school Athletes. If you plan on playing at a D1 institution you should start the planning early. The guide provides guidelines and the application.

Bookstore

 College Visit Tip #3 – The bookstore is a great place to approach students with questions

College Visit Tip # 3 Meet students in the campus Book Store

A great place to approach students with questions is the bookstore. So certainly look at the tees and sweatshirts but also consider it a great place to start a conversation with current students about the school.

College Dorm

Dorm room Choice

College Visit Question # 2 – Can Students Choose their College Dorms

College dorm lifestyle is a new experience for most freshman. Being in the right dorm can be the different between a great college experience and the worst college experience. If the college or university provides dorm choice (ask), it is up to you to do your research and find out the lifestyle preferences of the people in each dorm on a specific campus.  With research and information in hand you can make better choices.

Ask Lots of Questions

Ask lots of questions

Your Questions Matter!

Ask lots of questions when visiting colleges and universities. It is important for you to ask questions. Whether your questions are about the admission process, financial aid, roommate selection, faculty, or lifestyle related the answers you receive to your specific questions will play a key role in your college decision process.  If you are an introvert or shy person, practice asking your questions with a parent or friend. Although it might at first seem difficult to speak to strangers and ask questions, once you practice a little you will find it becomes easier. Your questions do matter!
