Visit the College of Agriculture
The best way to find out whether the College of Agriculture is right for you is to experience it firsthand. During a visit to Auburn and Ag Hill, you can learn more about the college with a special interest session, take a tour of Ag Hill led by Ag Ambassadors, and even have the chance to visit one of our research facilities.
Ag Hill Tours
We encourage all prospective students to start with a College of Agriculture Information Session and then add one of our Research Facility Tours to follow. We will discuss college resources, research opportunities, study abroad experiences, and more.
Currently, visits will be held in-person & virtually through November 11.
In the event the University should decide to operate under remote operations, all tours, information sessions and events will be moved virtual.
Research Facility Tours
As a part of your Ag Hill tour registration, you will have the option to add a tour of our state-of-the-art research facilities! To register for a research facility tour, make sure to select one of the options below in your visit registration. The tour you choose will follow your Ag Hill tour.

PLEASE NOTE: We will not offer tours on the following dates: September 18, October 9.
Ag Ambassador Virtual Tours
The best way to learn about the College of Agriculture is just to be here! We will provide virtual information sessions with one of our Ag Ambassadors for groups of anywhere from nine to 100. During your virtual visit, we will tour Ag Hill and point out some of the most iconic locations on campus. You will learn about our mission and how our students will meet the demand of agriculture — the world’s largest industry. Our students have interest in animals, but also human health, world business, politics, food safety, plant science, biotechnology, and more.
Also during the tour, we will provide examples of careers that our students pursue after undergrad, of clubs and organizations that help sharpen your personal and professional skills, and of study abroad opportunities. Your interactive virtual visit allows you to see campus and imagine what that college environment will look like with you here. We’d love to host you and your class soon.

On the Auburn University campus, be sure to visit the iconic Samford Hall, and take a picture in front of the “Auburn University” sign. Since you are already close, visit “Toomer’s Oaks” where students gather regularly to celebrate big athletic wins by rolling…yes, with toilet paper, the famous oak trees. Explore downtown and grab lunch or cold glass of lemonade.
Around campus you will find the sprawling Donald E. Davis Arboretum has a collection of native plants. The Jonathan Bell Lovelace Museum documents the university’s athletics history. The Jule Collins Smith Museum has art from the 18th–21st centuries. South of Auburn is Chewacla State Park with trails and a large lake. Southwest, Tuskegee National Forest is home to wild deer. There is no shortage of opportunities, be sure to check out the tourism bureau for ideas!
