Prospective Students

Schedule a Tour

Step 1

Schedule a Tour with the Office of Admissions

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers a fantastic tour of campus which includes a stop at Juniper-Poplar Hall, home to the Honors Living Learning Community (LLC). It will give you the opportunity to see a pod-style residence hall, the same format as the Honors LLC.

Step 2

Schedule a Tour with the USF Honors College

Once you've toured campus with the Office of Admissions, contact us to schedule additional time to visit the Honors College. We ask for at least two weeks' notice to plan a tour tailored to your interests.
