When you think of college tours, you probably think of something for students who are trying to choose a college, not students who have already enrolled in one.
However, if you’re a student who will be attending McDaniel in the fall, you may find that you want to come see McDaniel again over the summer before your orientation in August. I know that after I graduated high school, I suddenly found myself with a lot of time to think about what my future at college held. All of this thinking made me nervous, and I hadn’t visited McDaniel since March of that year, so I felt somewhat out of touch with why I liked the college and why I had chosen it. As a result, my mom said that we should go visit McDaniel for a day so I could get excited about it again. She even told me to try to set up a tour if I could.
Set up a tour with admissions I did, and it was great for relieving some of the anxiety I was feeling. The other girl on my tour was also an incoming first year student, so I felt even better because I learned that I wasn’t the only one who wanted to see the College again. The tour got me reacquainted with McDaniel, and more importantly, it renewed my excitement.
So if you’re an incoming student or even if you’re a prospective student still, the summer can be a great time to tour McDaniel. If you’re an incoming student, I’d recommend calling Admissions to make sure they know that you’re already committed to attending McDaniel. Otherwise, you can schedule your visit online. You can find visitation information here. Have fun on your visit!
