“Becoming a tour guide has definitely been the best decision I have made during my time at UMass. Not only has it introduced me to some of the most hardworking and caring people at the university, some of whom I feel lucky enough to call my best friends, it has also allowed me to hone my professional skills, giving me experience that is second to none. The work we do as tour guides grants each and every one of us more opportunities as it combines some of the most sought after skills in any job, such as interpersonal skills, public speaking skills, and leadership skills. Being able to work with such great people while consistently growing and improving professionally, truly makes this job the best of both worlds!”

“Some of my best college memories have happened because of tour guiding! Whether that be juggling 10 coffees on coffee run before a UMass open house, laughing in our Visitors Center, zooming in a golf cart on VIP tours, or even traveling to Europe with other tour guides for spring break, I wouldn’t trade these memories or people for the world! Tour guiding has given me so many gifts that I will cherish forever!”

“I love being a tour guide because I have met some of my best friends throughout the process. This position has connected me with so many people from diverse backgrounds, and is the reason why I call UMass home. From exchanging secret Santa gifts, to spending hours laughing together in the Visitor's Center, to reciting the “Go U!” chant together at open houses, every memory in and out of the office will remain with me forever!”

“Applying to be a tour guide was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have had incredible work experiences and made truly lifelong friendships -- but rarely talked about is the impact of the work itself.  As tour guides, we are able to help prospective students with important decisions regarding college.  Representing UMass Amherst, we hope to show people from around the world why we love our school community!”

“Applying to be a tour guide was the absolute best decision I made my freshman year! From waking up at 5 a.m. together before open houses to grabbing lunch after staffing the Visitor's Center on Saturdays, and every moment we've spent together in and out of work, my coworkers make my job an absolute privilege. We're an incredibly diverse group of people from all different majors and backgrounds and I've got to experience so much more of UMass through this job than I would have ever thought. We're so excited that you want to join the group, and I can't wait to meet you!”
