We took our first “official” college visit trip last month. Sniff. Sniff. How in the world is my baby old enough to be saying the word “college”, let alone be looking at them?! Give me a moment.
So to make these visits be more productive I just had to make a College Visit Checklist, of course.
In addition to being thin, I liked that it “locked” closed.
The folder is made from thin plastic and my daughter would need something to write on. Rather than carrying a clip board (I’m pretty sure that would be uncool), I made a lightweight “clipboard” for her to write on.
I grabbed a roll of vinyl that I already had and covered the card board to make the “clipboard”.
The folder and the checklist worked well for us on the visits. Since we took the time and made the effort to drive 10 hours each way on this trip, I wanted to make sure that my daughter (well, really all of us) got the most out of each college visit. And the checklist helped us do just that.
We’ll definitely use the checklists again for our next college visits.
