Dear Juniors and Sophomores (and your parents):

Spring break is almost here. Of course it’s important to rest and recharge our batteries during break, but for juniors and sophomores, it’s also a great time to get some work done on the college search. In addition to resting and recharging, here are two more ideas for your spring break:

campustour1. Visit some colleges and universities

Spring of the junior and sophomore years is a great time to visit colleges. For most sophomores, it’s a first serious look at a college campus, and the tour and visit can help focus a student’s attention on getting good grades. Juniors are developing a list of prospective colleges. Spring break is the perfect time to visit a few schools.

But how do you make sure you make the most of a college visit? Review this excellent resource and check out the resources about the college visit on my web site.

college fair2. Attend a college Fair

Consider attending a College Fair near you. During spring break, there are ten national college fairs taking place around the country. You might combine the college fair with a campus visit of a nearby college. Read more about making the most of your college fair visit.
