What should I ask on my tour?
Your campus tour is your chance to explore campus fully and learn more about the experience of a real student (your tour guide). Every question is a good question! Here are a few ideas if you're not sure what to ask your tour guide:
- "Why did you choose UNH?"
- "What's your favorite thing about UNH?"
- "How did UNH prepare you for deciding what you want to do after graduation?"
