Madeira Student Tour Guides

2015 STARS Group

Our tour guides have many interesting facts and figures to share. They present a bright and interesting face to prospective Madeira students and their families. We call them STARs (Student Admission Representative). There is no one better than a current student to give visitors a sense of what Madeira life will be like.

Meet a Few Madeira Tour Guides

Tatum: Class of 2020

  • Hometown: Mclean, VA
  • Stats: Member of the JV soccer, lacrosse, and basketball teams
  • Favorite Madeira tradition: I like Swing Sisters, because no matter where you are coming from as a new student, your swing (students welcoming in new girls) is a friendly face, so you know at least one person coming in.
  • Why she loves being a tour guide: The campus is so beautiful and I really enjoy getting to walk around and show it off to our visitors. I also like to meet possible incoming students at Madeira.
