 College counseling at CollegeLab

College open houses offer students a chance to experience how college classes are taught.


College Open Houses

Many colleges hold extensive Open Houses, including tours and opportunities to meet students. for prospective applicants.

If there’s one at a campus near you, GO THERE! Even if it’s not one of your target colleges, you’ll get smarter.

You 'll get a sense of what campus life is like at one more college and, usually, a clearer focus on what you like and don’t like.  Sophomores and Juniors:  You should go, too. You’ll get a clearer sense of what people mean when they talk about dining halls, double occupancy or a big lecture hall.

You’ll meet admissions officers, which is never a bad idea; and you’ll see that kind of school at its best. At most schools, you can eat in the dining hall; take in a home game, a field hockey match or a lecture by one of the school’s professors geared to high school students and their families.

Tell us your experiences at college Open Houses!
