We are excited to offer this on-campus event to admitted students and their families to showcase our gorgeous campus while being safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Programs will be held completely outdoors.

Each program will consist of an enhanced student-led tour of campus with five extended stops along the way to provide in-depth information. A total of four separate tour groups will depart on the half hour and each tour will be approximately two hours long, limited to groups of 20 per tour.
