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 from a knowledgeable staff member.


We recommend that students visit on a Monday or Thursday in the heart of the semester (Sept. 15 through Nov. 24) as that timing affords families the added opportunity to also visit classes, see students in action and meet key faculty members. Cronkite Day (an all-day special event on Oct. 31) is another excellent opportunity to visit. 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 in summer on select Mondays and Fridays. Summer tours commence at roughly 10:45 a.m. on the following dates:

  • May: May 5, May 9, May 12, May 16, May 19, May 23, May 30
  • June: June 2, June 6, June 9, June 12, June 16, June 20, June 23, June 26, June 30

  • August: Aug. 1, Aug. 4, Aug. 8, Aug. 11, Aug. 15, Aug. 18, Aug. 22

The Cronkite tours are preceded by an optional campus tour and ASU information session. The start time for tours is approximate, based on when this earlier tour arrives, so if you are only attending the Cronkite School tour, we recommend you arrive early.

You can reserve your spot at NOTE: Be sure to check "downtown Phoenix campus" and "communications and media" on the drop-down menu then "journalism" on the page that follows in order to be sure there is a Cronkite School session available on your preferred date.
