Go See Campus - A completely free resource for planning campus visits and making the most of the college search
Many universities have special days set aside for high school students to come visit their campus with family and experience a small part of college life.
Seniors are allowed 2 college days (excused absences). See Mr. Bounds for a form BEFORE you take a college day.
