Campus Tours

A campus tour visit will typically include a student-led campus tour and an admissions counselor meeting to answer questions you may have. Appointments are appreciated so that we may ensure your visit is successful. Individual meetings such as with faculty, athletics, and financial aid can be scheduled by request. Let us know your preference when you arrange so that we can do our best to meet your needs. Arrangements can be made for you to sit-in on a class throughout the academic year. Please be mindful of university breaks and holidays, as classes are not in session.

We welcome your visit throughout the year. Our office is open Monday through Friday, with multiple tours available in the morning and afternoon.
