Janet featured at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse University
I believe that nothing substitutes for a first hand visit and tour of the college. As a professional consultant, I participate in special tours arranged by the colleges for counselors and consultants only. In addition to the campus tour, these include meetings with admissions professionals, student panels and faculty.
I have also had the pleasure of hearing many acapella groups, musical ensembles, and even learned a Kinka dance from a group of students who had recently returned from Ghana. On one tour, while present for the Open House for prospective students, I was able to hear presentations by all department Deans and on another I heard seniors present their Independent Study projects. These tours are invaluable in helping me to evaluate fit.
To keep up with an ever changing environment, I tour about 25 campuses a year and have toured over 280 colleges and universities in the US.
