Translating Opportunity to Uplift Rising Stars
Our Early Outreach efforts aim to "Plant the Seed" with students at the middle school grade levels. We invite middle school and community organizations' students to see and experience SDSU by taking a campus tour. Visiting a college campus can be one of the first steps for a young student on their path to higher education.
If you have a high school class and would like a campus tour, please contact the
The tours and outreach materials must be requested at least 3 weeks in advance (4 weeks for groups of 60 or more) and are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. EOP Campus Tours are available every Wednesday and Friday between 10 am and 2 pm. All requests are reviewed before an approval confirmation email is given. Turn-around for Campus Tour approval is THREE Business Days. Presentations and student panels are not always guaranteed due to classroom size/availability on campus.
Helpful Guidelines to guarantee a tour request is approved:
The smaller the group (40 and under), THE BETTER
Smaller groups are easier to manage, get tours guides for, and find presentation rooms for panels or presentations.
100 Students is the highest number we can accommodate during a tours
Since we like to keep the groups small and VERY interactive, groups larger than 100 students make it difficult to get enough student volunteers to be tour guides during the school day thus making the tour groups larger and diminishing the experience.
Due to limited staff and student availability we will ONLY be able to offer tours on Wednesdays and Fridays at the following times: 10am, 11am, 1pm, and 2pm.
Also due to limited staffing we will ONLY be able to provide tours and presentations/panels to groups with 6th, 7th, or 8th graders.
