Top 30 Universities Info Session and Virtual Tour Links

Helen Chiu , Jul 14, 2021

The pandemic has served as a double-edged sword for high school students applying to college. 

While students cannot visit the universities they hope to spend the next four years of their lives, colleges have made learning about their offerings more accessible than ever through virtual events. 

I strongly recommend rising seniors to check out the information sessions and virtual tours offered by colleges that interest them. You can gather material for “Why This College?” essays and show the university some love. 

Schools outside of the Top 20 might even consider your attendance to virtual events when making your admissions decision. 

If you get to connect with an admissions officer during an information session, remember to ask some questions and send a follow-up thank you email to begin building a positive relationship. 

I also highly recommend attending student panels if they’re available. Hearing from students themselves can provide you rich and unique insights that you otherwise would not from information sessions.
