The truth is, it's never really too early to start looking into and researching colleges. I started when i was in my freshman year at high school. Write a list of the schools you want to go to: 1 dream school, 1 fallback school, and 3 schools you want to go to. Every year or maybe every semester, after your plans on your future change, or maybe your preference for college changes, make a new list and compare with your older ones. Pretty soon you will have a long list of colleges you are interested in. Narrow it down, and find the ones that are right for you (majors, city, student life, professors, etc).
You should start visiting college campuses by the summer before your senior year in high school. Get to know the campus and the feeling of it. It really helps to visit a college and any time from the second semester of junior year to near end of senior year is acceptable.

For now, concentrate on getting information from different colleges, the majors they offer, etc so you can narrow down your list of colleges to visit.

Just visit as many as you can on vacations, and factor in what type of climate you like and whether or not you want to go to a big school. Hope this helped. ♥Rebecca [ ROCKSTARR's advice column | Ask ROCKSTARR A Question ]
