Campus Tours Update

To: Faculty and Staff

From: Blia Yang, Director of Undergraduate Admissions

As we all have in the midst of the pandemic, the Tours & Events program in Undergraduate Admissions has had to become creative in meeting the demand from students and families wanting to learn more about our campus. We have responded with a variety of online, YouTube-based, and self-guided options over the last two years.

Recently, we have been carefully resuming our in-person tours, as you may have seen around the campus. The tours are outdoors and serve a limited number of people per group. 

As we enter our Spring Yield phase with a record number of applicants once again, we are prioritizing admitted students and their families for in-person tours. Shortly after receiving their admission notification, students will also receive a link that will allow them to sign up for tours. After yield season ends, we expect to gradually increase our in-person tour options and open them to the general public, health conditions permitting.

In addition to the in-person tours, we will host a range of virtual activities for our admitted students and families, including Banana Slug Day on April 16, an all-online experience that will offer many opportunities for students to connect with our faculty and staff.

Thank you for your flexibility and grace as we navigate the process of reopening tours and offering the best possible experience for our admitted students and families, while continuing to stay safe.
