We have been on lots of college tours. This one was just right in its balance of welcome, “touring” and information. Every person we encountered on campus had a friendly smile for us. It is clear that Valpo is a special place.
We have taken many college tours (our eldest is a sophomore in college) and the Valpo tour was the most personalized and informative we've experienced. It's smart to treat prospective students with such respect and individualized attention!
My host made me instantly feel welcomed at campus, and they really made it a point to involve me in all the campus activities and give me the best experience possible. I am so happy we were partnered together, and this visit has really been helpful in making my college decision.
Very much liked the small tour groups specific to my major...and with a professor!
The visit was very fun and engaging. Very positive and great energy during the event. A lot of information and interesting activities were available. I very much enjoyed my visit.
I loved talking with the many students at Valpo. They gave me such great advice, answered questions, and were super friendly and kind. I loved the conversations that I was able to have with the fun students who came out. I liked that we played the bingo game. It made talking to new people much less scary and awkward.
