Free walk­ing tours of the Vas­sar Col­lege cam­pus will be of­fered Satur­days, Oct. 8, 15, and 29.

Tours will be­gin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Reg­is­tra­tion is lim­ited.

The tour lead­ers will be Vas­sar alum­nus Chris Smart, as­sis­tant to the pres­i­dent and as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of chem­istry; Colton John­son, col­lege his­to­rian; and Les­lie Of­futt, as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of his­tory.

Tours, about 90 min­utes long, start from the front en­trance to the col­lege’s main build­ing. They will be held rain or shine, and all ages are wel­come. To sign up, call (845) 4377400.

High­lights will in­clude the main build­ing, a na­tional his­toric land­mark, as well as the Thomp­son Me­mo­rial Li­brary and the Vas­sar Chapel. The cam­pus is also a des­ig­nated ar­bore­tum, home to more than 200 va­ri­eties of trees and thou­sands of trees all told, so fall fo­liage col­ors will abound.
