Admissions Advice

I got connections with a few colleges, what now?

The colleges I connected with aren't the ones I'm applying to, and I don't really have specific questions. However, I am somewhat interested in one of them that I heard was very rigorous. How do I go about sending them a message? Is it email format or is it more of a semi-formal chat? Would it be impolite if I straight up asked "what makes your university so hard"?
