Pokémon Go University of Utah tour
Classes end for summer 2016


Prospective students invited to special campus tour designed to showcase campus while catching Pokémon

The Office of Admissions at the University of Utah is excited to announce an all-new campus tour experience for prospective students: The Pokémon Go Campus Tour at the University of Utah.

Pokémon Go has changed the way people interact with technology and has helped people discover new places and meet new people, and the University of Utah has become a popular area in Utah to “catch ’em all.”

“We’re excited to find an opportunity to connect prospective students to campus and take the general, everyday campus tour and offer something incredibly unique,” said Scott Kirkessner, assistant director of Admissions at the U, who oversees campus experience. “So far, we’re among the first few universities to offer this as a visit option, and we think a lot more will follow suit.”

Prospective students are invited to participate in a Pokémon Go campus tour on Aug. 4 and 11 at 5 p.m. Participants will tour campus and hunt the Pokémon that roam the University of Utah. The events are free, but space is limited. Register today to reserve a spot. Click below to register.
