Communications Staff & Tour Guides

Tour Guides

Residential Life tour guides are a key part of the recruitment team in Residential Life. Tour guides lead daily tours of the residence halls to more than 12,000 guests each year and also work special recruitment events to help students and families see the value in living on campus. If you are outgoing, can think on your feet, and enjoy talking to people, being a tour guide may be right for you!
