College Visits Created with Teens and their Families in Mind
A Unique and Effective College Visit Planning Process
Founded by Janice and Alan Caine, the idea for Custom College Visits grew out of their daughter’s college visit experiences. As they looked back over her college search journey and discussed with her the main factors that helped her make her final choice, they discovered that the customized campus visits and engaging on-campus meetings Janice had arranged were a key factor in her decision. Not the week-long bus tours visiting colleges she had no interest in, not the expensive marketing pieces that filled the mailbox nor the virtual tours online, but actually being on campus – meeting faculty, coaches and students with real experiences and enthusiasm for the institutions. Realizing the importance of these in-depth campus visits and seeing a need for assistance among college-bound teens and their families, the couple decided to share Janice’s unique planning process.
A current client recently wrote “Janice’s true gift is planning the college tour! I am a good planner but she really knows her stuff. -Lisa”
