We were able to walk around and enjoy the gardens and beautiful buildings on a quiet Sunday morning. What a joy it would be to be a student here and get to see the campus in all four seasons!

Check the website - search tours and information sessions then click on "current schedule" Looks like they have 2 tours on remaining Sundays in August at 1 pm and 3:30 pm, but check the website to be sure.
