Campus Tours and Info Sessions

Taking a student-led campus tour is one of the best ways to discover what Holy Cross is all about. Our guides know every corner of our campus, and they’ll give you the lowdown on what it’s like to live and study here. After all, for many guides, the tour was an eye-opening part of their college search process. They’ll make sure it’s just as valuable for you.

Student-Guided Tours

We are excited to offer in-person campus tours. During the one-hour tour of campus, our welcoming tour guides cover a lot of ground — physically and intellectually — traversing The Hill and touching on topics ranging from declaring a major to their favorite meals served at Kimball Dining Hall. But the greatest advantage to having a student guide is the chance to get the inside scoop from someone who's living the Holy Cross experience. 

Tours depart from the Office of Admission in Fenwick Hall, where visitors sign in before the tour departs.

Applying to college can be overwhelming, and maybe a bit confusing. During July Advisory Days, we give rising high school seniors a little extra help in navigating the college admissions process during a comprehensive program which consist of the following: 

1:30 pm - Holy Cross Information Session
2:00 pm - Campus Tour
3:00 pm - Essay Writing and Interviewing Skills Seminar

July Advisory Days will be offered every Tuesday and Thursday in July starting on Tuesday, July 12.

The July Advisory Day event includes the information session, tour, and essay writing/interviewing skills workshop. Families do not need to sign up for separate information sessions and tours.
