The Early Links Program Campus Tour is offered by the Office of Social Equity at Valdosta State University. This program
is geared towards students in elementary and middle schools in the state of Georgia. The tours will provide enrichment
and motivation opportunity to tour the Valdosta State Campus, see what a college looks like, and have the opportunity to ask
questions about college and have a better understanding from an early age about higher education and grasp the idea behind
going to a university.
Campus tours are made by appointment & made weeks or months in advance. Advance notice is always preferred. Campus tours are offered during the fall and spring semesters during the week on Tuesday through Thursday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Campus tours during the summer semester are more flexible and can be accommodated any day of the week. The coordinator will schedule visits based on availability, reserve venues for sessions if needed, provide confirmation of scheduled events, and ensure that an OSE representative is scheduled to host each visit.
The campus visit generally consists of::
- A campus tour
- Informational sessions or departmental presentations
- A venue for lunch
Responsibilities of Visiting Groups
A school official must complete the tour request form and schedule a date for a campus visit. A school official(s) must accompany
the students throughout the entire visit. (There must be one school official or parent chaperone per 10 students)
*Lunch/snacks can be arranged between the visiting school and by the hosting University but are not guaranteed.*
