A unique feature of the New Trier adviser room experience is the home visit, a feature of our adviser program since 1925. The purpose of this visit is for the adviser to meet the family and establish him/herself as a liaison between the home and the school. Visits generally run 20-30 minutes in length. Home visits can start taking place during the summer between freshman and sophomore year and advisers are encouraged to complete them by the beginning of December. Each adviser schedules their home visits at times that work with their personal schedule and are NOT required to start them over the summer.
