Cronkite School Tours and Visits

The Cronkite School holds regular building tours and information sessions for prospective undergraduate students that provide in-depth information about Cronkite's programs, curriculum and student opportunities, usually from a knowledgeable staff member.


We recommend that prospective students visit on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday in the heart of the fall or spring semester, as that timing affords families the added opportunity to also visit classes, see students in action and meet key faculty members. See below to verify that there is a tour of Cronkite offered on your planned date prior to booking your travel arrangements.


Cronkite also welcomes visitors on most dates when a campus tour is offered. Fall Cronkite tours commence at approximately 10:30 a.m. (following the "Experience ASU" campus tour) on the following dates:

  • Mondays : Aug. 24, Aug. 31, Sept. 14, Sept. 21, Sept. 28, Oct. 5, Oct. 12, Oct. 19, Oct. 26, Nov. 2, Nov. 9, Nov. 16, Nov. 23, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14, Dec. 21 & Dec. 28

During the fall and spring semesters, optional sessions allow prospective students to observe the Cronkite School's nightly newscast on PBS. These sessions are held later in the day, following "Experience ASU" and Cronkite tours.

Scheduled Cronkite tours are preceded by a campus and housing tour and ASU information session. If you need to schedule a Cronkite tour outside of the dates listed above, please contact Cronkite's outreach coordinator at
