MC offering Twilight Tours this fall

MC offering Twilight Tours this fall

Sept. 11, 2019

This fall, 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.

From Sept. 19 until Oct. 24, 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. Please note that no evening tour will be offered on Sept. 26.

“Our Twilight Tours were so popular this summer that we decided to offer them again this fall,” 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 being accepted for the spring and fall 2020 semesters for first-year students and transfer students. Morning campus tours also are offered Monday through Friday. To schedule a tour, please email admissions@maryvillecollege.edu or call 865.981.8092.
