MC offering Twilight Tours this summer

MC offering Twilight Tours this summer

June 12, 2019 

This summer, Maryville College is offering another convenient way for prospective students to visit campus and see why MC is considered one of the South’s best colleges for student-centered, whole-person undergraduate education.

Through August, the Office of Admissions is offering Twilight Tours every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Tours, which are conducted by current students, include a meeting with an admissions counselor who can answer any college search or financial aid questions.

“Our Twilight Tours were so popular last year that we decided to offer them again this summer,” said Alayne Bowman, vice president for admissions and financial aid at Maryville College. “Evening tours are convenient for families who might not be able to be here during the work day, and the cooler evening temperatures are ideal for the walking tour.”

Applications are still being accepted for the fall 2019 semester for first-year students and transfer students. Morning campus tours also are offered Monday through Friday this summer. To schedule a tour, please email admissions@maryvillecollege.edu or call 865.981.8092.


Maryville College is a nationally-ranked institution of higher learning and one of America’s oldest colleges. For more than 200 years, we’ve educated students to be giving citizens and gifted leaders, to study everything, so that they are prepared for anything — to address any problem, engage with any audience and launch successful careers right away. Located in Maryville, Tennessee, between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the city of Knoxville, Maryville College offers nearly 1,200  students from around the world both the beauty of a rural setting and the advantages of an urban center, as well as more than 60 majors, seven pre-professional programs and career preparation from their first day on campus to their last. Today, our 10,000 alumni are living life strong of mind and brave of heart and are prepared, in the words of our Presbyterian founder, to “do good on the largest possible scale.”
