About Group Tours

Group Tour

Group Tours are designed for any group of ten (10) or more that would like to visit campus as a group. Generally, these groups are made up of students or community members on athletic teams, in youth organizations, government offices, and K12 classes.

Please read the information below to find answers to your questions about our various offerings and registration procedure.

Things To Consider

Before Your Tour:

Ensure that you have fully confirmed your visit with the Group Tour Coordinator and have sent in or are bringing all the necessary materials. (group roster, tax exempt form, paperwork, lunch payment, etc) Plan to bring at least 1 chaperone per 10-15 high school students, or 1 chaperone per 10 elementary or middle school students.

When bringing a group of students to campus, challenge them to get the most out of the experience by being prepared, engaged, and attentive. Encourage discussion about the college experience even before your group arrives on campus and have the students come up with questions they want answered on their visit. Challenge your group to interact with the tour leaders during the tour.

On the day of your Tour:

Please arrive on time. Leave your starting point early, allowing time for possible delays. Please contact our Group Tour Coordinator when you are 20 minutes away from campus. Should it appear that your group will not arrive on campus at the expected time, please notify the Group Tour Coordinator, Elizabeth Spenlau, immediately by calling (678) 839-2296 so we can adjust your itinerary accordingly.  If your group is late, agenda items on your scheduled itinerary may be modified or canceled.

If the total number of visitors, including students, teachers and chaperones, changes in any way, please contact the Group Tour Coordinator immediately. It is important that we have an accurate count of visitors coming to campus for each group in order to plan and staff for the best possible visit.

Teachers/chaperones should stay with their assigned group throughout the campus visit at all times. It is the responsibility of the teachers/chaperones to maintain order while the group is on campus. This includes, but is not limited to, stopping excessive talking and cell phone use. Our required chaperone-to-student ratio by age group is as follows:
