Meet the Tour Guides
At Riverdale, we have just over 125 students who participate in our Student Tour Guide program. Our students love welcoming prospective students and parents to the campus and sharing their Riverdale experiences with our visitors. We hope your interactions with the Tour Guides will provide you with a sense of our community and culture.
Below, you will find short profiles on each of our Student Ambassadors.
