Hi there! I remember when my child was preparing for college interviews, and it can be a bit nerve-wracking. But don't worry, I've got some suggestions for you! First of all, it's great that you want to show genuine interest in the school. Make sure to research the college in-depth before your interview so you can ask specific questions about the programs, clubs, or facilities that you're excited about. Here are a few questions you might consider asking your interviewer:

1. What do you think sets this college apart from other similar institutions?

2. Can you tell me about any unique academic programs or research opportunities available to students?

3. What kind of support does the college offer for students in terms of academic advising, career services, and other resources?

4. How would you describe the campus culture and community?

5. Are there any major events or traditions on campus that students look forward to each year?

These questions should help you engage your interviewer and demonstrate your enthusiasm for the school. Good luck with your interview, and I hope you find the perfect college fit for you!
