Do colleges offer summer tours?

Hello! I'm planning to visit some colleges and I wanted to know if they offer tours during the summer break. Can anyone provide some insight or share their experience?

Certainly! Many colleges and universities offer campus tours during the summer months. In fact, it's quite common for schools to have scheduled tours on weekdays during the summer, albeit with a slightly different schedule compared to the academic year.

Keep in mind, however, during the summer colleges can vary in appearance and atmosphere compared to visiting during the academic year since classes typically aren't in session, so there will likely be fewer students and events on campus. On the downside, you might not get a full representation of campus life, but the positive aspect is that it might be easier to interact with admissions staff and ask more in-depth questions.

To schedule a summer tour, visit the school's admissions website and look for information on campus tours or campus visit registration. Make sure to sign up in advance, since popular tour times can fill up quickly. Also, it's a great idea to reach out to the admissions office with any questions about specific programs or resources you'd like to know more about during your visit.

Lastly, don't forget to wear comfortable shoes, bring some water - especially if the school is somewhere that has a hot climate during the summer! - and take notes or pictures to help you compare colleges later on. I hope you have a great time exploring campuses!
