In the past, we have answered the most popular questions asked during travel season: here and here. We considered writing another “Questions from the Road” piece, but then we thought it might be better to provide advice about the types of questions you should be asking at college fairs or during campus visits.

Your admissions counselor will be calling you soon to congratulate you and provide additional details.
Didn't win? Seniors who apply by December 1, are admitted, and then visit after being admitted are entered into a drawing for tuition, room and board. That winner will be announced following our Accepted Students' Day in April. Full details on our giveaways are at stevenson.edu/tuitiongiveaway.

Contact the counselor assigned to your school or area to check their visit schedule....Click here to read more.

Fear not, you have the entire summer to start preparing and planning for your senior year and we have some tips for how to have a productive and fun summer....Click here to read more.
