Daily College Tours

Fall 2021

Daily General tours are Monday-Friday, see below for times and registration. If space is not available for you to join a tour, consider doing a Self Guided Tour of the Swearingen Center.

The College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) offers tours for prospective students. These general tours are led by current engineering or computing students. Tours last about an hour and provide a general overview of engineering and computing programs.


You will get a GENERAL overview tour around the College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) building(s) led by a current student. You will see some labs, but not all labs for all majors will be shown. We are not able to offer meetings with faculty members as part of the tour. If you would like to speak with a faculty member, or see specific department labs please attend a Big Friday.


  • A high school age prospective student (and their family), generally interested in attending college for some type of engineering or computing program.
  • A senior in high school or transfer student (and their family) that is unable to attend a Big Friday session.
  • If you are an educator, and would like to bring a group of students for a tour please contact Stefanie Perrell directly to make arrangements.


Tours are generally offered on weekday afternoons throughout the year. Registration for CEC tours should be made at least two weeks prior to the requested date. Upcoming tour dates and times:

Fall 2021 daily tours are available Monday and Wednesday-Friday at 2pm and Tuesdays at 1pm through the beginning of December.
