The Significance of the Student Tour Guide on a College Tour: Northwestern University

 

To be honest, our initial stroll around the Northwestern University campus this past August left us relatively unimpressed.  Everything was nice, but the campus didn’t scream “exceptional” or “perfect fit” to us.  After attending the information session and the student-led tour, our impressions changed.  We were reminded of the impact a student tour guide can make on one’s impression of a school.

The tour guide was dynamic!  He gave us the feeling that he had the world at his fingertips, was inspired daily, and had a bright future ahead of him – all because he attended Northwestern University!  My husband and I left the campus longing to go back to college ourselves!

Northwestern’s location alone has so much to offer.  It is on Lake Michigan, fifteen miles from Chicago, and in a suburban setting which boasts the great downtown of Evanston, IL.  The academic offerings, unusual academic flexibility, and numerous activities and organizations are top-notch.  If Northwestern is on the list of schools you are considering, it is worth a visit… and make sure to take a student-guided tour.
