Attracting college students to our campuses fuels the economic engine for Greater Baltimore and is the core of Baltimore Collegetown’s mission. The Collegetown and Gown Tour provides high school counselors with an important introduction to Baltimore and to our area colleges, providing an invaluable connection to prospective students. The variety of participating schools offers guests an insight into the incredible diversity of the region and the higher education options it has to offer.

Since its launch in 2017, the Tour has welcomed 658 counselors from 37 states, the British Virgin Islands, England, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Nepal, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and Thailand. Tour participants have inspired thousands of applications and enrollments, resulting in over $251 million in Gross Financial Impact, thus proving just how valuable and critical of a program the Tour is to our region.


The Collegetown and Gown Tour will take place in Baltimore, Maryland from Monday, November 18 - Thursday, November 21, 2024 and will feature 9 campuses. We expect all participants to be present from start to finish and ask that you make travel arrangements to arrive in Baltimore before 10:30 a.m. on Monday and depart Baltimore after 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
