Exploring Colleges or Meeting Representatives In Person

  • While websites are great, they cannot replace more direct forms of exploration. Talking with family, friends, and high school staff is a great way to find out more about a school. Speaking to a representative from the school is also a good idea, and many schools send representatives to visit CHS throughout the year - see our College Visits calendar and keep an eye on the Daily Announcements.

    There will also be college fairs in the area that are great chances to hear from and meet with representatives from a lot of schools at once.

    Every student is strongly encouraged to explore in person the schools to which they are considering applying. Many schools will host various open houses for prospective freshmen throughout the fall and spring, and most have options to schedule a campus visit or campus tour individually. Please search for this information on the admissions pages of the schools’ websites.
