Tips for taking summertime campus tours

by Richard Flowers, Student Communications Assistant

We hope that you are all having a great summer and have a visit to VCU in your plans!

Tours are held daily (Monday through Saturday) throughout the summer, so we hope that you decide to come see our campus for yourself. You can register for one of our upcoming information sessions and campus tours online at

Though we have had some very nice days here in Richmond lately, temperatures during the summer months can get pretty hot and the air can be humid.  So here are some tips for those of you planning to join us for a tour this summer:

1. Bring water — you’ll want to stay hydrated

2. Wear comfortable shoes — tours generally last just over one hour

3. Wear sunblock/sunscreen — we don’t what any of you to get a sunburn

4.Wear a hat — it’ll help to provide some shade and protect your face and neck from the sun

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
