Led by exemplary current honors students, the information session/tour is an abbreviated option for accepted students who cannot attend an Honors Choice day and an excellent option for a prospective student. Your tour guides will overview the Honors College and important dates and deadlines. You will also tour one of the living spaces available to Honors students. Tours meet at 4:30pm, in the lobby of the Marriott Honors Community Building and are held on varying Mondays and Fridays.

All tours are held in the Donna Garff Marriott Honors Community and last approximately one hour. Tour check in is located around the fireplace in the MHC lobby (not the front desk).

Should you schedule an Honors Tour, we also recommend scheduling a visit with the University Office of Admissions to see a full University of Utah presentation and receive a campus tour.
