Designed specifically for school, team, or community groups, these tours offer a great introduction to the University of West Georgia.
Registration is required so please pre-register:
Register for Group Tour
If you wish to bring 10 or more students/visitors to campus for a visit, please complete the form here. Groups of this size should not sign up for the daily campus tour. Reservations should be made as far in advance as possible. Group tours are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate your date request, but due to office hours and campus events we may need to consider alternative dates. A confirmation email will be sent once your agenda is finalized (typically 5-7 business days).
If you must cancel your visit, it is essential that you give at least three (3) days
notice due to planning expenses. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability
for your organization.
Our group tour is a 45-minute walking tour. All participants should have proper footwear and attire to be prepared for inclement weather.
*Please Note: Completion of the Group Tour registration form does not confirm your visit. Your visit confirmation will be sent via email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before Your Tour
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, Chelsea Middleton immediately by calling (678) 839-2296. Our tour leaders are students and their class schedules need to be accommodated. If your group is late, 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 imperative 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.
During Your Tour
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:
- 1 adult : 10 students for middle school
- 1 adult : 15 students for high school
