Your Campus Evaluation
Before students attend their college visit, they should create an objective evaluation system to help list important factors worth investigating, leaving space for additional comments. Both you and your parent/ guardians can rate the school after your visit. A numerical scale 1-5 is an easy way to do this:1 - No way; 2 - Eh; 3 - Others are probably better; 4 - I can see myself here; 5 - This is IT!
Colleges are complex institutions. It really isn’t possible to know everything about a college after a brief visit, and even students who have been there for several years might also have a hard time giving you an accurate character reference. Creating an evaluation system is a good way to gather clues about a college.
To help keep track of college visit experiences, students can complete the College Evaluation Worksheet The College Comparison Worksheet should be used to compare and contrast items noted on a student's college checklist.
These references will provide a side-by-side comparison of your top schools for students to choose from.
