Campus Group Visits

We appreciate all of our campus visitors for making this a busy year.  We love hosting all of our community partners!  Unfortunately, all of our group visit dates for this Spring semester have been filled, and therefore we will no longer be accepting requests at this time.

We will be offering limited group visits this Summer based on tour guide availability.  To inquire about visits, please email groupvisits@boisestate.edu.  If you are interested in being notified when our group visit dates in Fall 2022 are available for registration, please fill out this form.

Make Your Visit a Success!

You can lay the foundation early for a successful group tour by preparing your students in advance for the visit. Challenge them to be prepared with questions for the admissions counselor and student tour guides. Our tour guides are current Boise State students who love showing the campus to visitors and get excited sharing their own college experience with prospective students. Please review our tips for planning and FAQs before making your reservation.

Please follow these tips to ensure that your visit is a pleasant experience for everyone:

  • Plan ahead. We request two (2) week’s notice to process your request for a visit and send your confirmation. A confirmation email will be sent from groupvisits@boisestate.edu once your request is received and reviewed.
  • Weekday group sizes are capped at 75 and select Fridays are capped at 120, but we ask that high school groups have one (1) chaperone for every twenty (20) students and elementary or middle school groups have one (1) chaperone for every fifteen (15) students.
  • Group visits will not be scheduled on weekends or major holidays.
  • Schedule changes made within one (1) week of your visit date cannot be guaranteed, but we’ll do our best to accommodate any unforeseen circumstances that may affect your group visit.
  • If conflicts arise and you are unable to attend your visit, please contact us as soon as possible.
  • Additionally, if groups arrive twenty (20) minutes after the scheduled start time, the visit will be cancelled.

TIPS FOR ENSURING A SUCCESSFUL VISIT

  • Please arrive on time. Allow yourself ample time to arrive on campus. Groups will be notified on where to meet in their confirmation email.
  • Teachers/chaperones must stay with their assigned group throughout the campus visit. The chaperones are responsible for monitoring the group and ensuring that individuals behave.
  • Please discuss with your students the importance of being quiet and respectful during the presentations, and promoting positive behavior while on tour.

Scheduling

CAN WE VISIT IN PERSON?

Yes! We are so excited to welcome you back to campus for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 with in person tours.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY GROUP VISIT?

To allow us time to plan for you, please schedule your visit at least two (2) weeks in advance. However, the earlier a visit request is made, the more likely it is that we will be able to accommodate you on the date you request. In order to schedule your visit, please use the registration links above.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL VISIT INCLUDE?

Depending on availability, high school group visits include an optional 30 minute information session and student panel with a 90 minute tour of campus.  For our elementary and middle school groups, we offer an interactive scavenger hunt around campus, approximately 90 minutes total.  On select Fridays, we offer a chemistry show led by one of our well known instructors for our elementary and middle school groups; this visit is approximately two (2) hours.

WHO GIVES THE TOUR?

The tour is given by trained Boise State students (volunteer tour guides) who are able to share the uses of University buildings, inform you about fun, historic university traditions, and provide their own views and perspectives of the Boise State student experience.

HOW WILL MY TOUR RESERVATIONS BE CONFIRMED?

You will receive a confirmation email when you provide a valid email address to us when scheduling your tour. (Be sure to add groupvisits@boisestate.edu to your contacts to avoid having our emails to you being blocked by spam blockers.) This email contains very important information about your visit.
