Do You Remember Your College Visit Tour Guide?

I don’t know about you, but some days I can barely remember what I had for breakfast, let alone what happened last week! 


Turns out I’m not just getting old: memory decay is a hallmark of the human brain.


Research tells us that memories start to decay immediately after they’re formed. The steepest rate of decay occurs in the first 24 hours after an event, with recall dropping by about 50%, then levels off over time.


Now imagine your high school student trying to recall details about one of the many college campus tours they took months ago from thin air…


There’s probably gonna be some glaring gaps, right? 🥴


Choosing which college to attend is one of the most important decisions in a young person’s life—why leave it up to our brains’ ~muddled~ mental filing system?


Cue: The College Visit Journal


With checklists, questions to ask, reflection prompts, and more, this guided journal helps your student record the aspects of their campus tours that stuck out to them in real time—so they can make informed decisions based on experience, not foggy feelings from months ago!


Journal in hand, your student will have the tools to:

  • Record and reflect on their experience using all five senses

  • Ask important questions of their tour guide or other admissions personnel

  • Showcase their accomplishments with a completed academic profile

And so much more! 

Tried-and-true resources. Informed decisions. $15.51 on Amazon. What could be better?! 👊

Alright, I’m off to attend to my many house plants I may or may not have forgotten to water last week…meet you back here in a few!

Talk soon,
