Many family vacations happen in August, so it makes sense, if possible, to plan a route that intersects a college or two (or maybe even three) for a visit. Granted, taking a college tour and inspecting dorm rooms isn't as exciting as hitting the beach or seeing the Grand Canyon, but it can provide a crucial glimpse into the realities of prospective colleges.
I'm inundated with college-related press releases. Every now and then, one lands in my inbox that I feel is worth sharing with my readers. One that landed yesterday focuses on college visits and has some reasonable thoughts. I thought I would share some of that information today.
