​Seeing college before you decide where to go is a must. It’s hard enough to decide where to apply, but choosing where to attend can be ever harder. Touring a college can help ease that stress a lot; however, it’s important to know what questions to ask to get the best information you can. Best dorm? Nicest classroom? Best dining hall? All might lead you to some invaluable answers, but we wanted you to know that there are a few questions that might be a bit awkward to ask on a campus tour. Of course there are questions that might be better off asked in a more private setting, but here are the questions not to ask on a college visit:

Looking for a better way to tour? Our friends over at Campus Sherpa can help. They’ll set you up at any one of the many campuses that they’re on with a personalized tour with a student that currently attends. Find out more in depth, student-oriented details that will give you a better understanding of what campus is really like.
