What are essential questions to ask at a college fair to make the most out of it?

Hey everyone, I’m prepping for an upcoming college fair and feeling a bit overwhelmed with the idea of speaking to college reps. Got any must-ask questions that could help me understand if a college is the right fit for me? I’m thinking about class sizes, campus culture, internship opportunities, etc. What else should be on my radar?

Hello there! It's fantastic that you're gearing up for the college fair – this is a prime opportunity to gather valuable information. You're on the right track with class sizes and campus culture. Don't forget to ask about the faculty-to-student ratio, as this can give you insight into how accessible professors will be. Delve into the specifics of your major or academic programs you're interested in – what unique classes are offered, and what practical experiences, like research or co-op programs, are available?

Another key area is support services. Inquire about academic advising, career services, and mental health resources. It's also good to know the outcomes of their graduates – ask about job placement rates or graduate school admissions statistics. Lastly, one often overlooked aspect is the alumni network. How strong is it? Can it help with internships, job prospects, or mentorship programs? By asking these questions, you'll get a more complete picture of how each college can support your academic and professional journey. Enjoy the fair!
