Pitt-Greensburg offers prospective students the opportunity to see campus via drive-thru tours

Dr. Robert Gregerson greets guests during a Drive-Thru Tour.The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is offering prospective students and their families the opportunity to visit campus and meet faculty and staff—all while maintaining prescribed physical-distancing precautions—through its innovative drive-thru campus tours.

Described as a drive-thru tour of campus, prospective students and their families arrive on campus at an appointed time where they are greeted by members of the Pitt-Greensburg community and start a fun and informational tour of campus. The pre-planned tour allows the visitors to see all of the campus buildings and get a feel for the campus. At pre-determined spots, visitors pause and have the opportunity to chat with campus representatives who wear face coverings and maintain appropriate physical distancing from the visitors who stay in their vehicle.

Joining Campus President Robert Gregerson, PhD, in staffing key locations along the tour route are representatives from Student Services, Residence Life, the Academic Village, Financial Aid, and Admissions.

Pre-registration at https://www.greensburg.pitt.edu/admissions/visit-campus is required for the visit, and visitors are able to choose a 30-minute time slot on the designated days. Three dates are currently scheduled for the drive-thru tours: August 29, September 19, and September 26. Please note that there are a limited number of time slots available on the scheduled dates between 10 a.m. and noon, so register as soon as possible.

“We held several drive-thru tour days this past summer and received positive feedback from the prospective students and their families,” said Dana Bearer, director of Admissions at Pitt-Greensburg. “During this period of COVID-19, we’ve been successful using Zoom sessions to talk with students in place of our usual face-to-face Admissions events. Students and families still want to visit campus, though. Our drive-thru tours have allowed us to safely bring prospective students to campus, and it gives them a chance to talk to key campus representatives.”
