As a recent high school grad, I went through college visits last spring, and I can testify to how important and influential a tour can be. The colleges I visited were all 500+ miles away, so I really only knew them on paper. Seeing them with my own eyes really changed my perception, and the student tour guides really colored my impressions of the university. For example, one school I really hadn’t considered much moved to the top of my list due to its excellent campus tour. As for that whole walking backwards thing, I can’t say I particularly noticed it much. The guides were too busy cracking jokes and telling anecdotes about their universities, and we were too awed.
