✨Community Tour✨

Comm tour header

DeKalb is excited to welcome you to your new college hometown.  Grab a friend and jump on a bus at the Holmes Student Center! Buses will leave every 15 minutes starting at 10:30AM.


Community leaders and more will greet students with a warm DeKalb welcome and guide you on a 30-minute tour of DeKalb on the Huskie Bus. Students will learn about places to shop, bank, dine, and just have fun. 


Cool facts and quirky history are all a part of the tour as students navigate the neighborhoods around campus, downtown DeKalb, Sycamore Rd and more.   In addition to learning about places to go in DeKalb, you will also learn how to use and navigate the Huskie Bus system.  And your community leaders are happy to answer any questions you have about DeKalb. 


See your new home as a Huskie and jump in to engaging with our greater community! Grab friends (and meet new ones) on a bus tour of DeKalb, meet nonprofits and find a way to volunteer, and write an encouraging card to a local high schooler to give back.
