Enthusiastic, knowledgeable student guides provide a true Carolina Experience, sharing information about landmarks, legends and student life on a one-hour walking tour of campus.

For general visitors: During the spring semester, January 8 – April 24, the Carolina Classic tour is offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 1:00 p.m. and, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 3 p.m. (Tours are suspended during exams and graduations.)

Our staff is always happy to review information and help with orientation to the town and campus which, should these tour times not work into your schedule, make the self-guided tour brochure of campus more meaningful.
