"Working for npp isn't just a job but more of an experience. The amount of work that I put in with each student is worth it when I see the joy in the students face when they are able to say that they understand the material and can do the work on their own."-Kevin Rodriguez '14
Thank you for your interest in visiting Occidental College. NPP welcomes your group, however due to the popularity of the tours we may not be able to accommodate all group requests. Please read the following list of conditions and expectations before you submit the GCampus Tour Request Form.
The program hosts students ranging from kindergarten to 8th grade. Tour groups should be 60 or less students.
NPP cannot provide tours to high school students. To set up a tour for your high school group or to find more information, please call the Occidental College Office of Admissions at 323-259-2700.
All groups must be accompanied by at least one adult chaperone per twenty visitors. All chaperones must remain with the group at all times including the entire campus tour. Group chaperones, not the student tour guides, are responsible for the behavior of their students while they are guests on our campus. Tour guides have the authority to end a campus tour if student(s) behave inappropriately.
How to sign up for a tour
Group visits are available weekdays only from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. When choosing your arrival time, we ask that you plan accordingly so that you may arrive on time. Arriving late may cause your group to miss all or part of the presentation and/or your campus tour.
Group visits are contingent upon the availability of room space and tour guides. In order to be considered for a visit, please complete and return the Campus Tour Request Form at least 30 days in advance of your desired date. No group visit request is considered unless a completed Campus Tour Request Form is received. No visit request is ever guaranteed in advance and is only officially confirmed upon receipt of a written confirmation email from the NPP staff. If you wish to cancel your visit, after receiving a confirmation, you must contact us at email@example.com. On the day of your visit, please provide a cell phone number of the accompanying group leader so that we may contact him/her if necessary.
Due to staff commitments, on-campus events, or times of high visitor volume, there are certain time periods when tours are not available.
Food Service on Campus
Lunch is not covered by the Program. Your group is able to purchase food from the Marketplace (the campus dining hall) with cash. Your group may also pack bagged lunches if desired. We do not have a place to refrigerate students’ food, however it may be stored securely in our office.
