Finding the college or university that is just right for you can be a long and arduous task, but nonetheless an important and vital task. Whether you’re a fresh high school graduate, a forward thinking high school student or just trying to get back into school to pursue your higher education, campus tours and visits are the perfect remedies for your college search headaches. Colleges and universities have hundreds upon hundreds of programs, events, clubs, groups, activities and opportunities that they are just dying to tell you about and show you. Instead of spending hour after hour and day after day searching webpages, emails and brochures about the institutions you’re interested in, set up a campus tour or visit. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn about all the great things each school has to offer, you will also have the chance to get a feel for the campus’ atmosphere and lifestyle (you would have a hard time achieving those results from scanning wordy webpages!). Click on any of the Utah college or university links below and set up some campus visits or tours this summer. Find your perfect fit!

He travels to distant lands, forms a band of some of the greatest knights of his era, and withstands wave after wave of ruthless taunting by the French. True to typical blogging form, I will now explain, through a vague and overextended metaphor, how an awesome parody of an Anglican myth relates to your college experience.

What to do in the impending summer months? Will you be taking on a job or two to earn the big bucks? Doing an internship? Or is this a summer to relax? A few months ago, when deciding what to do with some extra time, I had a difficult time settling on what I’d like to do. I had made pro and con lists, and each decision had good and bad points. I was approached by a friend who suggested I ask myself this question: “Which of the options would be more memorable? In a decade, will you still remember the experience or not?” She suggested I take to the route that would mean most to me throughout my life and that would be a memory to cherish.
