5 Questions to Ask on a College Tour

When touring ENMU, or any college in general, it is good to get most of the information that you need before you make it to campus. Having more information will help you determine if that college is a good fit for you. It will also help you when trying to find out where to go on the first day of school. I'm sure no one wants to be the lost puppy on campus, trying to find their way around. Here are five questions that you should ask on your college tour:

1. How big are the classes?

This is a very good question because it will prep you for how many classmates you can expect to have in your classes. It can also help you determine what kind of learning experience you will receive due to the class size. Most of the time, you have a different interaction with teachers whenever you are in a smaller classroom.

2. Where are the best places to study on campus?

There are plenty of great study spots on campus, so it is a great question to ask. This way, you'll know where and when you can go to the best study spots.

3. What are the dorms like?

You'll likely live in a dorm room while attending college. Typically most people would like to know what the living condition would be like due to it being a new experience for them. Make sure to ask what the residence halls are like. Also, make sure to ask for a dorm tour; that way, you get to know where you will be living and what it is like.

4. What are some hangout spots?

College is a great place to meet new people and make everlasting memories. Knowing the right spots to mingle and meet up with new people is a great way to make friends.

5. What was your experience like?

This is a bit of a more personal question to ask your tour guide. Chances are they have been there and done that, so they have basically been in the same position that you are in now. Everyone's experience is going to differ, but asking what their experience was like will give you some kind of understanding of what to expect.

Hopefully, these will help prepare you for your college tour. These are some of the questions I would ask if I were to do it all over again. I wish you all the best of luck!
