Heading on your first college tour soon? Don’t know what questions to ask on a college tour?
Don’t worry, this blog post will give you 51 (yes, 51!) questions you can ask on your tour!
No lie. I was so nervous about my first college tour.
In all honesty, it was not as bad as I thought it was. It was just hot and following around a student in a uniform. College tours are far from scary. Most of the information they give can be asked at any time after, so if you forget to as a question, don’t worry.
Here are some quick tips you should know:
- No one cares how you look.
- There is A LOT of walking. (Buy a pair of GOOD walking shoes.)
- The lines are always long in the student union/food courts.
Be prepared and make a friend or two.
