Right now, schools are preparing to roll out the red carpet to prospective students and their parents to showcase their offerings. Take advantage of virtual tours like Lincoln College’s, but don’t miss the opportunity to experience a campus live and in person. Each on-campus experience inevitably provides unexpected insights. Illinois State offers several options to fit different circumstances as well as schedules. Illinois Wesleyan prides itself on individualization but offers open houses a well.
These open house campus tours are often tightly scheduled, one-day affairs meant to provide a sense of the school’s atmosphere and to highlight its advantages.
Because college tours are rushed affairs, schedule in breathing space at Vrooman Mansion. Our relaxing accommodations provide the perfect respite you’ll need. There are two ways we can be here for you.
1. Stay with us before your day on campus.
If you’re coming from St. Louis, Chicago, Indianapolis or other far-flung points, avoid traffic and travel hassles by booking a room at our bed and breakfast. By being here the day before your scheduled tour, you can better plan your visit. You and your teen can create a strategy to ask the right questions and see the most important things. With your route marked out in advance, you can sleep in just a bit longer in the well-appointed suites at the mansion and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast before heading to school. Head out with an advantage by being well-rested and well-fed.
2. Stay the night after your campus tour.
Return to Vrooman at the end of the day and take the evening to unwind, refresh, and recap. What did you like? Does it feel like a good fit? This is a golden opportunity to spend time with your adult-approaching teen and be in the mix as big decisions are made.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns so we make your college tour experience a rewarding and memorable one!
