Quick tips for saving big on your trip.
Make Yourself at Home
Let's face it; you may end up calling Southwestern PA "home"
for the next four years. To get a sense of the city and all that it has
to offer, spend a day or two exploring the terrain.
Be Flexible and Save
Looking to stretch your travel dollars? If you plan your trip when hotel
occupancies are low, you may save enough to cover Steelers tickets or
dinner at one of the city's many ethnic restaurants.
Create an Itinerary
Budgeting your time is critical. To make the most of your visit, be sure
to do your homework before you arrive. First of all, determine where your
chosen schools are in relation to one another, and how long it takes to
get from campus to campus. Allot at least one half day for each school
you're interested in. Next, plot your itinerary and then call the admissions
offices to schedule your visit. Finally, make sure you build in time to
get a feel for Southwestern PA. In the end, exploring what's off campus
is just as important as any campus tour.
Investigate school activities prior to arriving so you can take part.
If you want a realistic picture of campus life, avoid spring and winter
breaks and final exam dates. Although summer is a great time to build
the campus visit into a family vacation, campuses are only at half-mast.
