BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Prospective students and their families can now tour all five Blinn College campuses in person.

Face masks and social distancing are still required on Blinn campuses. Tours are available Monday, Wednesday and Friday on the Brenham, Bryan, and RELLIS campuses. Tours on the Schulenburg and Sealy campuses run daily Monday – Friday.

Those touring the campus are asked to certify that they are not displaying any COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID before arriving on campus.

School officials say they’re happy to have students return to the campus and that this is a step toward returning to normal.

“Those tours usually last about 30 minutes to an hour. Currently, we’re only going into one building, but we are taking them around all of the campuses, explaining everything and where everything is,” said Elaine Abshire, Director of prospective student relations for Blinn College. “Getting them back on campus is what we’re most excited about.”

For more information about self-certification, visit www.blinn.edu/back-with-blinn/covid-self-certification.html.
