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

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 in Kimball. 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 Admission Office located in Fenwick Hall, where visitors sign in before the tour departs.

On-Campus Information Sessions

If the campus tour helps you get a feel for what Holy Cross is like, the information session fills in the details. Sessions run about 45 minutes, during which time our admissions counselors discuss subjects that may not have come up on the tour, including important information about the application process. We welcome and encourage your questions and participation, so don’t hold back.
