Planning to take a College Campus Tour? Experts say that taking a college tour is one of the best ways to discover if the school is right for you.
In addition to helping families understand why college campus tours are essential, the free guide to College Campus Tours, a 36-page digital magazine, details the most important questions students and their parents should ask of administrators, currently matriculating students, and faculty. Among the articles:
- Tips on Planning Ahead

College campus tours help students weed through the glossy catalogues and websites to get a candid feel for the atmosphere, student body and location of the colleges they are considering.
“By taking a college campus tour, students can start to envision how they would fit in at the school,” said Dean Tsouvalas, Editor-in-Chief of StudentAdvisor.com. “The most important question students need to ask themselves is ‘Will I be happy here?’ This guide helps them maximize the time they spend on campus and ensures they speak with the right people to help them start to answer that question.”
According to research conducted by StudentAdvisor in the spring of 2010, 65% of students cited college campus tours as very important when determining where to apply. But the student is not the only one that may consider campus tours important. Many families may be unaware that some schools factor in a campus visit in the admissions decision; demonstrated interest by an applicant can favorably influence the committee’s decision.
