Campus tours are a great to learn if an institution is the right fit for a student and their family members. It is suggested to prepare questions to ask during the campus tour that way you can ensure the institution aligns with the students values and meets the students needs.
It would also be helpful to take notes during a campus tour that way you can review what you learned and decide if that institution is the best option for the student. During these tours prospective students are able to learn about the built environment, the physical/sensory environment, the sound environment, and the visual environment of the institution.
School tours are usually planned for 1 day. Students are encouraged to plan their visit during the school year when classes are in session to get a true sense campus life. A family campus visit can be arranged by calling the school's visitor center or admissions office.
