1. In-Person Tours

We are welcoming students and their families for in-person tours once again. Campus tours are led by current students, and you can choose an outdoor-only or indoor/outdoor campus tour. You'll see campus landmarks, like the Red Doors and Holy Cross Plaza, and get a feel for being a student on our campus. Physical distancing is observed throughout the tours, and masks covering the nose and mouth must be worn in indoor spaces during the tour.


2. Virtual Visits

The college search process didn't stop during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we've added virtual visits as a result. The following virtual experiences are available:

  • Financial Aid Webinars: Our financial aid experts share information about the financial aid process and maximizing opportunities for assistance
  • Virtual Fridays in Focus: Faculty members provide detailed information about a specific major
  • Virtual Campus Tour: Student tour guides share stories about campus and lead you through a virtual exploration of the hilltop.
