Questions to ask during a campus tour

Why campus tours are important

Scrolling through a school’s website and social media only gives potential students a superficial glimpse of campus life.

Campus tours are crucial in giving parents and students better understanding of a school’s culture and community.

Tours can be a bit daunting for some students; however, there’s no need to feel anxious about visiting a school. When it comes to touring, faculty and staff are excited to meet students and families, and it’s our goal to ensure a comfortable, informative experience.
