Monday - Friday Campus Visits

The weekday Campus Visit is a one hour guided tour led by a current student that attends SF State. Our campus tour is conducted by an SF State student who will guide you along the pathways outside of the campus buildings while they share what they love about our campus. These visits are available to anyone interested in learning about our campus. All tours are by reservation only and space is limited. (A maximum of 5 individuals per family, please).
