The campus tour is a general main campus tour hosted by a graduate student ambassador. These tours are customized to each students' interests and needs and are primarily offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the Fall and Spring semesters, exclusive of holidays and breaks. For semester dates and breaks, please visit our online academic calendar.
