Tours & Information Sessions

Student-Guided Tours

Holy Cross offers one-hour, student-guided tours of the campus, designed to address many aspects of student life for prospective students and their families. Questions are encouraged, and tour guides are eager to share their personal experiences.

Tours depart from the Admissions Office located in Fenwick Hall, where visitors should also sign in before the tour departs. Preregistration is not required; however, please feel free to call 800-442-2421 if you have any questions regarding the schedule.

Information Sessions

Information Sessions are approximately 45 minutes in length and are led by a representative from the Admissions Office. Sessions are designed to cover aspects of the Holy Cross admissions process that are not discussed on the campus tour. Parents and students are encouraged to discuss their application questions and concerns. Please sign in at the Admissions Office before attending the information session.

*Visitors do not need to pre-register for a tour or information session.
