Student Volunteers

Student Tour Guides

Art Museum student tour guides give public highlights tours of the collections on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. during the academic year. Tour guide training is provided as a one-week, intensive “boot camp” during Intersession (January 29–February 2, 2018). Training includes in-depth exploration of the collections with curators, workshops on topics such as tour technique and visitor engagement, and a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lunch is provided each day.

Student tour guides must be able to commit to at least one highlights tour per semester. No previous art history coursework is required, only an interest in art and in interacting with the public. Once trained to give highlights tours, guides can train to give Flashlight Tours of the campus collections, tours of special exhibitions, and specifically themed tours.

Applications are now being solicited from undergraduate members of the classes of 2020 and 2021 and are due Wednesday, November 8, 2017, by midnight. Click under the “Files for Download” section on this web page to download an application.
