April 4, 2019
Your college will become your new home away from home, so it is important that you are sure it is a good fit. Below are some tips and tricks to help you survive college tours!
-Write up a list of questions that you would like to be answered during your tour.
-Schedule a visit ahead of time and make sure to let the college know how many people you will be bringing for your tour! By scheduling a tour, you also may have the option to tour a specific area of campus that highlights your major!
-Check the weather: depending on where and when you are touring, you may need to bring rain gear or a coat.
-Ask lots of questions
?: What are the classroom sizes?
?: How good are professors at answering questions during office hours?
?: How big is the campus? (ex. small, medium, large)
?: Where do students go to study?
?: Are there a lot of shopping areas around campus (for groceries, convenience, etc.)
? How many students end up transferring?
? What meal plan do you recommend?
? How hard is it to change your major?
-Take pictures of different areas that you will be spending a lot of time in (ex. dorms, dining hall,rec centers, library, study centers, etc.)
-Pay attention to dorm sizes, conditions, and overall vibes.
-Rate your experience and write down any thoughts: Write down what you liked, and what you didn’t like so that you will have something to look back on when it is time to make a decision!
