▼   Group Tours

Group tours are reserved for school or other community groups of 11 or more students. All group tours must have at least one chaperone per 10 students. Groups must provide their own transportation for the tour.

Group tours are available Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. with the exception of university holidays and some special event days. Complete the Group Tour Reservation Request form to save your spot.  Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.  Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the tour time.

▼   JagMobile Tours

JagMobile tours are for Mobile County High School students.  A principal, counselor, or teacher must request the tour.

The Office of New Student Recruitment will send two tour vans to your high school on the designated date/time to pick up students from the high school and bring them to campus for a tour. While on campus, your students will receive an admissions presentation from one of our staff members and be given a tour by a current student tour guide. They will view a residence hall room, visit the student recreation center, and see an academic building. In addition, they will receive a tour t-shirt that students only receive if they take an official tour of USA. Once the tour concludes, the students will be bused back to campus.

This program is geared towards helping students see campus who may otherwise not have the means to do so. Therefore, we ask that you give priority to these students. However, we welcome all and any students who want to tour if space is available.

Very Important: All students must sign a waiver prior to boarding the bus in order to participate. A maximum number of 14 students are able to participate at each designated time. Although we do not ask that a chaperone attend, if the school chooses to send someone with the students, please account for one of the 14 slots for the chaperone.

Currently, we are offering JagMobile tours on Tuesday - Thursday mornings with a pick up time of 8:30 a.m. and return time of approximately 11:30 a.m.  These are first come, first serve basis and based on availability.

Use this form to request your JagMobile Tour!

Student quotes from our JagMobile tours:

"The tour guides made me feel like South would be great school for me to go to. I would be at home but I would like I'm away at the same time."

"It was very educational and enthusiastic and my favorite thing about it was seeing the on campus pool and gym and learning I could work as a fitness trainer."

"I like how informing the tour is and it can make anybody feel like South is their dream college."

 

High School Counselor quote:

"We are very appreciative of USA giving our students an opportunity to participate In the JagMobile Tour. The small group setting, transportation to the campus, the ability to interact with the admissions on a more personal level, made this tour a great addition to the group tour opportunities already available at USA. Our students were very pleased and excited after returning to campus."
