Information sessions tend to run about an hour in length, as do the student-led campus tours. Walk-ins can often be accommodated if it is not a busy day, but it is a good idea to reserve your place ahead of time.
And we don’t mean just to the admissions officer (although those are important too). Ask your student tour guide questions, and if you have the courage, go up to random students on campus. They are the least likely to be trained with “admissions” answers.
What do students do on the weekend?
How often do they engage with faculty outside of class?
Is it easy to schedule classes?
What is life like in the dormitories?
What is their favorite campus tradition?
Why did they choose to enroll there and what other schools did they consider?
