Campus Visit Questions
Here are some things to think about as you're visiting schools. However, this is by no means a complete list.
- Is there a campus health center? What services are offered?
- Does the student health center refer students to the local hospital? How far away is it? How large is it?'
- How safe is campus?
- Is there any kind of campus shuttle service? When and where does it run?
- How often are teaching assistants the ones teaching classes?
- What sorts of opportunities do freshman have to get involved on-campus?
- How flexible are meal plans? Are there dining services on campus where a meal plan doesn't work?
- Do current students try to make you feel welcome? Were they helpful in answering your questions?
- Does it look like there's much to do outside of class time, both on-campus and off?
- Does the campus seem like a good size for you?
- Do you feel comfortable and safe?
Take note of:
- classroom sizes and on-campus living spaces.
- how faculty and staff interact with students.
- how current students interact with one another.
Remember that you are looking for a school that's a match for you. No one else can make the decision, so try to envision yourself there -- studying, working, socializing -- and trust your intuition. Your perfect fit is out there.
