Group Visit Expectations
The Southwestern College Admissions Office is committed to providing access to our campus for groups interested in learning more about the college. Information sessions and campus tours are organized with the prospective college student in mind, and are not intended for general school field trip purposes.
For the best visit experience, Southwestern recommends a group size of 20 students.
Visiting groups will be accompanied by adult chaperones/teachers/sponsors. We recommend one chaperone for every 10 students. The ultimate responsibility for each group rests with these designated adults, not Southwestern College.
Visiting students are expected to conduct themselves as respectful visitors to the campus and not demonstrate disruptive behavior during any aspect of their campus visit. Should such behavior occur, the Southwestern Admissions staff and/or tour guides have the right to terminate the campus visit immediately.
Groups are not permitted to use any electronic devices during a campus information session or tour (e.g., cell phones, iPods, etc).
Tours will take place in the sun, rain, cold, and snow. Only in certain circumstances are tours canceled, which is under the discretion of the Campus Visit Coordinator.
