Campus Tours are Back! – College of the Desert Foundation

As we enter the fall season, the College of the Desert Foundation is thrilled to announce the schedule for the College of the Desert Campus Tours. The tours will take place on the COD Campus in Palm Desert and may include visits with several popular departments, such as Nursing, Automotive Technology, The McCarthy Child Development Center, Agriculture, Public Safety, Architecture, Communications, Theater Arts, and many more. You will hear from instructors about the many achievements, and advances in the programs and how they are helping our students to learn and transform our communities for the better. You will also see the students in action and marvel at their enthusiasm, determination and aspirations for the future. The tour concludes with a brief presentation that will provide information on the many ways you can become more involved with COD, support the students, and help them achieve their academic dreams.

Tours begin on November 1st and continue twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Visits to a specific program or programs can be requested in advance. A complimentary lunch is provided at the end of the tour, and each attendee will receive a gift bag containing COD Foundation swag and information about how to support the Foundation.
