Group Guidelines: High School and College

Thank you for your interest in bringing a group to campus. We are excited to offer large groups an admissions presentation and a walking tour of campus. Please read the guidelines below before submitting your group tour application.

  • Group tour applications need to be completed a minimum of three weeks in advance so that we can best serve your students.
  • Groups must arrive on time. Arriving late will impact your scheduled group visit. Arriving 20 minutes late or more can result in a canceled or abbreviated tour.
  • Groups are expected to bring an adequate number of chaperones. Please schedule one adult for every 15 students.
  • Groups have the option of enjoying lunch in a residence hall dining center at a discounted rate (please provide tax exempt form).
  • Group size maximum is 50. We cannot accommodate groups larger than this size.
  • If you need to cancel your group visit, please let us know at your earliest convenience.
  • Please note: we cannot accommodate groups that arrive without notice.

Once your application has been received, a representative from our Office will follow up to approve the availability. For questions about your group visit, please contact our Visit Coordinator, Molly Button, at mmbutton@eiu.edu.
