Is it important to tour the campus in person before applying to college?
Office Hours #2: SDSU College Student Panel
This question was posed by a question during one of our most recent "CareerVillage Office Hours" sessions. During Office Hours sessions, we invite students to pose questions related to a specific topic. In this case, the topic was college life. If you answer this question, we will reach out to the students who attended this office hours session to inform them of your response, and all students on CareerVillage will benefit. If you would be interested in hosting an office hours session on a particular topic, please reach out to our staff!

Best of luck!
I do believe it is beneficial to tour the campus. I know it might be difficult to go on campus tours at this time, I might look to see if the school is offering virtual tours. I will say, of the handful of schools that I applied to and was accepted to, I only toured one of the campuses and that is the school I attended. It helps to be familiar with the feel of the school and be happy with the class sizes. It might help to see what amenities and student areas are offered if you will be living on campus. When I went on a tour, it was partially led by a staff member and partially by a student, it was good to get insights from both perspectives as well. You'd be able to ask the student about their experience on campus to determine if it's a fit for you.
