High School and Community Organization- Group Visits **not offered in the summer**

Group Visits are available to high school teachers, counselors or community members who are wanting to bring prospective students (9-12th grade) to campus. Group tours consist of a walking tour of campus, led by student ambassadors. These tours are designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in finding out more about becoming a Maverick and usually last an hour and a half depending on the size of the group. Groups also have the option to eat on campus (not funded through CMU).


Reservations are required for group tours and must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. These dates fill up quickly, to ensure that your group is able to come on your desired date we recommend you check the calendar often. If you need to cancel your group tour we ask for 48 hours notice (excluding unavoidable issues). If you have questions please contact Nichelle Chandler in Admissions at (970) 248-1943 or nchandler@coloradomesa.edu.

To ensure that we are able to adequately accommodate your group, the following times are recommended:

  • Monday at 9am and 1pm
  • Tuesday-Friday 1pm
