SELINSGROVE - Esther Lapitan, of Canton, is working as a student tour guide this year at Susquehanna University.
To become a tour guide, students must complete a written application and personal interview with the admissions staff. Once selected, students complete an intensive training program, followed by additional training sessions throughout their time on the job. Training includes shadowing veteran tour guides, becoming familiar with the admissions process and frequently asked questions and learning to present important information during the tour.
Lapitan, a senior majoring in history and political science, is a 2009 graduate of Canton Area High School and the daughter of Gideon and Betty Lapitan.
