Organized Group Tours

Join us for an hour walking tour of Claremont McKenna College led by a current Admission Ambassador! Each tour is specially designed for high school students and begins just outside of the admission office - on the floor of the Kravis Center. The group then ascends to the 4th floor and experiences an aerial view of the college. Students will walk away with a firsthand look at the academic, pre-professional and extracurricular opportunities available to them at CMC.
