Hi there! I remember when my child was going through the tour process and we made sure to have 5-10 go-to questions in our back pocket. Here are some questions you might consider asking during college tours to get a better understanding of the school and its environment:

1. What is the student-to-faculty ratio, and how accessible are professors outside of class?

2. What types of academic support services are available to students (tutoring, writing center, etc.)?

3. Can you tell me more about the campus culture and student life?

4. What kind of housing options are available for freshmen and upperclassmen?

5. What types of clubs, organizations, and extracurricular activities are popular on campus?

6. How does the school support students in finding internships and job opportunities?

7. What is the school's approach to mental health and wellness?

8. Are there any unique programs or opportunities that set this college apart from others?

Don't hesitate to ask any additional questions that are specific to your interests and needs. Good luck on your college tours, and I hope you find the perfect fit!
