We all know the importance of exposing students to what college is all about and bringing students on visits to college campuses is a popular way to do that. But just what are the approaches that different colleges have to hosting these college visits? And what alternatives might be options when bringing students to campus may not be practical?

These are the kinds of questions that were on the minds of leaders with the AVID program in Minnesota and that they raised with the Minnesota Private College Council. Working with the admission offices at our member institutions, the Council has developed a new guidance document, released this spring, to help schools and access programs understand their options for campus visits – and some alternative ways to help students learn about colleges.
