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 561 counselors from 37 states, England, Nepal, and the British Virgin Islands. Tour participants have inspired thousands of applications and enrollments, resulting in over $181 million in Gross Financial Impact, thus proving just how valuable and critical of a program the Tour is to our region.


The in-person Collegetown and Gown Tour will take place in Fall 2024 in Baltimore, Maryland. More information about the Fall 2024 tour will be posted here as it gets closer.
