Individual campus tours will be offered Monday-Friday at 9am and 1pm with one visitor (family) per time slot. Please schedule your visit at least 7-10 days in advance as we will not be accepting “walk-in” tours.
All visits will consist only of the campus tour and meeting with an Admissions Counselor. Due to COVID-19, we are not able to show any dorm rooms and some classrooms/facilities are restricted. However, after your visit, you will receive an email with links to view videos of our dorms, majors, faculty spotlights and more. If you’d like more information on a major/program, we will provide you with contact information to schedule a virtual appointment with a faculty member.
University offices will be closed for winter break until January 4, 2021. Tours will resume on January 20, 2021.
For more information, call (304) 336-8125
