Due to space and staffing limitations, group visits are open to students of middle school age or higher. 

Please note the following group tour restrictions:

  • Due to space limitations, groups are not permitted to eat in the Dining Hall.

  • Group visits will be rescheduled if other groups numbering 80 or more students have already reserved the same date.
  • Residence hall rooms will not be available for viewing during tours.
  • No tours will stop at the bookstore.
  • We require one chaperone per ten students. Classes will be in session during your visit, so we ask chaperones assist our student tour guides in keeping the group quiet to avoid disruptions. Tour guides will stop tours and return to admissions if the group becomes a distraction to classes in session.
