When visiting a college campus, it is often difficult to get a straight answer from people in the admissions office about student life. So if you really want to learn what students are like, you need to ask random people, like the people working the counters at the cafes and bookstores. Ask them about whether students are intellectually serious or more interested in partying. You’ll often get a straight answer from people who really have no vested interest in giving you the “party line.” So if you want the straight scoop about a college campus, ask the right questions of unsuspecting people. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn.
