Hello! It's great that you're preparing for your college tours. Asking thoughtful questions can give you valuable insights into each institution. Here are some questions you might consider asking during your tour:

1. What resources and support are available for academic and personal success (e.g., tutoring, career services, mental health resources)?

2. What's the average class size, and how accessible are professors outside of class?

3. What types of research, internship, or study abroad opportunities are available to students?

4. How would you describe the campus culture and student life?

5. Can you share some examples of recent graduates' career paths or graduate school placements?

6. What are the housing options, and how does the housing selection process work?

7. How do students typically finance their education (scholarships, financial aid, work-study)?

Don't hesitate to ask anything you're curious about. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your college tours!
