Help your students Go.Visit.College!

As a high school counselor, you understand that campus visits are not only a vital step in the college selection process, but can open doors to possibilities for students who may not think college is an option.

Governor Heineman also understands the importance of campus visits – and the role they can play in increasing the state’s college-going rate. That is why he is promoting campus visits as part of an initiative developed by EducationQuest Foundation and the Nebraska P-16 Initiative called Go.Visit.College!.

Through Go.Visit.College!, Nebraska high schools and postsecondary institutions are encouraged to work together to coordinate group campus visits during the academic year. While all students are encouraged to participate, please consider your first-generation students who might not otherwise visit a campus.

Here are some resources to help with this effort:

Campus Contact List provides the names of admissions personnel at Nebraska postsecondary institutions you should contact to coordinate campus visits. They are aware of Go.Visit.College! and will help make the coordination as easy and beneficial as possible.

Go.Visit.College! brochure outlines college selection and campus visit tips for students and parents.

Making Campus Visits Count provides activities you can coordinate to make campus visits meaningful for your high school  students.

Early Campus Visit Tips help plan your campus visit and allow eighth grade students to view the visit as more than a day off from school.

Campus Visit Questions for students and parents.
