students on college visits

Colleges tend to be more relaxed environments over the summer. Without the typical school-year pressure on students, professors, and administrators, these campus community-members are often more available to answer questions from prospective students and their parents. What questions, however, are best to ask? Find out on the Edmit blog, where former Boston University and Tufts University financial aid officer, Shannon Vasconcelos, advises you to dig deeper than the information that can be easily accessed on a college’s website and ask the questions that get to the heart of whether a particular college will be a good financial fit for your family.
