Head Tourguides are the visible leadership of the Admission Office's Tourguide program. Each head tourguide is assigned a letter day for which she is responsible.

In addition to their weekly responsibilities, the head tourguides are often called upon to assist with major Admission Office events, including Open Houses and revisit days.
