This walking tour was FABULOUS! Our guide, Sybelle, was so knowledgeable, welcoming and helpful! We toured this campus as a potential student for our daughter and the one-on-one interaction really helped her be able to ask so many more questions than if we were in a group setting. Highly recommend!!
