Conducted by Rick Haldenby
Times: 9:00 am, 11:30 am and 2:00 pm

This tour will not be nearly as grueling as the famous 10-hour version the students get each year, but it will be full of new insights on the spaces, their histories and their buildings. We will visit spaces you did not see when you were here as a student.

Campus Martius Tours
