In this week’s episode you will hear

Marissa is over all the visitation programs at Colorado College, and we cover: “Open Houses, “overnight visits”, “admitted-student visits”, “fly-in programs’ and “self-guided tours” Part 4 of 5. Preview-Part 4:

  • Marissa tells us what a self-guided tour is
  • She talks about the different types of self-guided tours
  • Marissa talks about when she recommends a self-guided tour
  • Marissa talks about whether virtual or in-person tours impact demonstrated interest and/or the student’s answers to the custom questions the college asks them to complete
  • Marissa talks about what a student can do to maximize the value of the self-guided tour.
  • Marissa talks about whether a student should let an admission officer know if they just popped by and stopped on campus but they didn’t do an official registration

Mark’s recommended resource of the week (52:38): Recommended Resource- National Partnership for Educational Access (NPEA) (educational-access.org) A great website for finding CBO’s in your area that help with college counseling.
