"By visiting the university you can truly see what feels good to you. Academics aside, when walking around a campus you can look around and take in the atmosphere which helps you gain a more valuable understanding of the setting. This helps you understand what types of places you like and by visiting campuses you can also see if any of the universities" lights a spark" for you. The tour was very valuable to me in that it showed me the type of environment I want to be in. I also ended up falling in love with some universities that I didn't even consider applying to before the tour."
