When considering some of the ways in which parents can contribute more positively to their child’s college search process, being a personal chauffer might not be expected to be on the list. Virtual tours, while offered by most higher education institutions, tend to fail to capture the scope and essence of a campus and its many offerings. When parents and their children are able to actually physically visit the top-choice schools, they can speak with faculty members about admissions, scholarship opportunities, possible majors, study-abroad programs, and other critical elements that sway their decision. When on these campus tours and visits, parents should encourage their children to speak with students to learn more about the pros and cons of life and studying at the college. Visiting schools and seeing students learning, succeeding, and thriving can relieve much of the stress parents and young people feel and instead breed excitement in the times to come; in addition to being memorable bonding experiences for years to come.
