Meet Your Tour Guides

Manhattan College campus tours are led by our student tour guides. When you go on a tour, not only will you get to see campus, but you'll also have the opportunity to ask a current student what it's really like to attend here. If you have questions for your tour guide after your visit, please feel free to email him/her at tourguides@manhattan.edu.
