As Nintendo’s press release points out, college and gaming go hand-in-hand. Especially when it comes to franchises like Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and many other Nintendo staples. In an effort to reach the latest generation of students roaming university campuses around the United States, the company will be hosting its new Nintendo Switch Together Tour to give them a shot to try out the latest games available on Switch!

The tour starts September 30 and will last until November 22. It’s free to attend, but Nintendo recommends pre-registering for each event. Here’s a link to the site where you can get your own unique QR code to use at events. Once scanned, you’ll be eligible for a variety of free giveaway items (no word yet on what those will be). Here’s the list of campuses and what dates they’ll be hosting the tour (all events are 11-5 local time). Nintendo notes that additional locales might be added later on:
