Guided Campus Tours
We have a great campus at Pitt-Johnstown, and we like to show it off. The Admissions Office benefits from the efforts of a group of dedicated student tour guides. These are current Pitt-Johnstown students who volunteer their time to direct prospective students and their families around campus. These students are the real experts on campus. They live here, eat here, go to class here, and are only a couple of years older than the student visitors. They are very often the single best source of campus information.

A typical campus tour will:

  • Usually include only 2 or 3 families
  • Involve a walking tour of campus
  • Take about 50 minutes to complete
  • Walk through all academic buildings on campus
  • Point out student service offices on campus
  • Take the families inside a Freshman dorm room
  • Include a visit to a Sophomore level dorm room
  • Point out all other (upperclass) housing
  • Depart from and return to the Blackington Hall lobby
  • Provide an informal forum for asking questions

We are proud of our student tourguides and their efforts. We understand that the campus tour is a key factor in many students' decision, and want it to be as pleasant an experience as possible.
