Everything to consider while visiting a college town

posted on: May 09, 2022

The area around the college or university campus is as important as the placements, extra- curriculars and infrastructure of the college. The area will be your home for the next few years, so it's good to be careful initially only when you decide to choose a college and the area around. There are four factors you must consider-

  • Size

The size of the town or the city is a major parameter. Big cities mean more transportation costs and expensive travel.

  • Walkability

This means that if the essential amenities are from walking distance or if there is availability of local transport or not.

  • Off- campus housing

This refers to the availability of accomodation options. Many colleges have limited options when it comes to staying 

  • Culture

Before moving to a place you must understand their culture. It's important to blend in when you are spending so much time in that particular town or city.
