With Spring Break coming up, many of you are planning to visit colleges. If you haven’t made plans to visit out of state schools, it is a great opportunity to visit colleges in Michigan or in nearby states: Remember, there are great colleges within radius of 4-5 hours—from Chicago to Indianapolis to Cincinnati to Pittsburgh to Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie! Just getting on a college campus can create benchmarks for comparison.
For some upcoming events and a list of questions to ask on a campus visit, check the “Junior Update March 2018” article.
