CAES Group Tours
We are thrilled you are interested in requesting a virtual visit or in-person visit with the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences (CAES) on UGA's Athens campus. The contact for the group must submit demographic/contact information for each student in the group when responding to the confirmation email before the visit.
- CAES offers group tours to no more than a total of 10 high school students, chaperones and teachers.
- Group tours are offered in the fall and spring for high school students in educational programs, community-based organizations and extracurricular groups.
- A CAES group tour is given by a CAES Ambassador and is an approximately 40-minute outdoor walking tour of South Campus. The CAES Ambassador will meet your group in the lobby of Conner Hall, 147 Cedar Street, Athens, GA. There is no public parking near this building.
- We do not offer group tours on Fridays, holidays, weekends, summer or when classes are not in session.
- Contacts for the group must have their students fill out demographic survey from a provided link before coming to the tour.
