To keep our guests and Carthage community safe the following visit protocols will be used:

Visiting During COVID-19

  • All visits will be individual visits (one family per admissions counselor and tour guide).
  • Each time slot (9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m.) will be limited to three families.
  • Each family will be limited to four total visitors, including the student.

At arrival

  • A public safety officer may greet visitors in their vehicle as they enter campus to provide directions and safety reminders.
  • All visitors will be asked a series of screening questions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • All visitors’ names and contact information will be recorded.
  • Guests will be welcomed with a friendly hello, but we’ll skip the formal handshake!

During the visit

  • Visitors are encouraged to bring their own masks; all guests will be required to wear a face covering.
  • All admissions staff and tour guides must wear a face covering.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available in the Office of Admissions and along other tour stops.
  • Seating in the Office of Admissions has been arranged for optimal social distancing.
  • All guests will be reminded to refrain from touching surfaces during their visit.
  • All visitors will use the restrooms in Lentz Hall; other restrooms on campus remain closed.
  • All campus tours will follow the same route to help with daily cleaning.

Please help us greet our guests with a friendly hello, which can even be seen behind your mask!
