Student-led tours are held Monday through Friday throughout the year (with the exception of University closings). The tour consists of an information session led by an Admissions Representative and a walking tour led by a student tour guide. Tours are conducted rain or shine, so please dress appropriately. Reservations are required.
If you are unable to attend a campus tour or an in-person visit, we encourage you to explore our virtual tour.
