Campus Tours and Information Sessions

Tours of the GCC campus are accompanied by an information session with an admissions counselor. The information session will highlight GCC’s programs and services, details about the enrollment process, and provide time to answer your questions.

The tour is a walking tour which lasts approximately 60 minutes. We encourage you to dress comfortably and wear walking shoes. Your tour guide will be a current student at GCC and work study in our Student Success Center. You are welcome to bring as many family members as you would like on the tour.

For those interested in living on campus we also offer an optional tour of College Village, our on campus housing.
