Who: U.S News Education will moderate a panel of college visit experts, including admissions staff from Boston College (@BostonCollege) and Ohio State University (@futurebuckeyes), Z. Kelly Queijo, CEO of Smart College Visit (@collegevisit), and college coach Suzanne Shaffer (@suzanneshaffer). 

What: A Twitter chat on college visits. Join the conversation by using the hashtag #CollegeVisit.​ 

Where: http://tweetchat.com/room/collegevisit 

When: Thursday, June 5 at 2 p.m. EST 

Why: Campus visits are an important step in finding the right college fit, and both parents and students can benefit from seeing a school in person.

While resources like the U.S. News Best Colleges rankings can offer data about a school, interacting with current students and staff members is one of the best ways to gauge whether a college is a potential match. This chat will provide parents and students with tips from experts to make the most out of the college visit experience.
