Campus Tours - Schedule a Tour

Learn first-hand what it's like to be a Penn Stater by taking a student-guided tour of Penn State Brandywine! Led by Lion Ambassadors, campus tours offer a student's perspective on campus life and academics. Tours take approximately forty minutes, so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
