Tour considerations

Our student tour guides do their best to balance facilitating group participation, answering a wide breadth of questions from visitors, and sharing campus knowledge along the many stops you’ll visit. To get the most out of your campus tour experience, please note:

  • While your guide will lead an interesting tour around campus, they may not be able to take you to certain areas, such as spaces not open to visitors or appropriate for large groups, due to student privacy or safety hazards (such as lab environments).
  • While we encourage you to ask your guide questions about Ƶapp, they may not always be able to discuss certain topics in detail, such as admission requirements and specific program details.
    • If you do have questions your guide isn’t able to answer, please connect with us after your tour.
  • Lastly, we ask for your patience and to please be mindful of your group’s level of participation, as it can at times be overwhelming for your guide to discuss many topics and address questions all at once.
