Students will also have the opportunity to meet with one of our admission counselors at the end of their tour. For the safety of our guests, tour guides and community, no walk-ins will be accepted. Additionally, all guests and tour guides will be expected to wear a face mask and practice proper social distancing during their time on campus.
