College hunting is hard. That’s why you end up with a laundry list of questions to help you narrow down the selection of schools.
What’s the cost of tuition? Are class sizes in the thousands or can everyone fit in a 30-seat room? Is it a walkable campus, or do you need a car to get around?
While these are all valuable bits of information, the most important question you can ask any college is whether their students have a strong success rate after graduation. The types of jobs and salary levels they attain are a reflection of the school’s ability to prepare students for the workforce.
This may not be an easy topic to raise on a campus tour, so make sure you do your research before visiting.
