You may have heard that visiting campus is the best way to know if it is the right fit for you — and we agree! But we also understand that not everyone is looking for the same thing on their visit. That is why we have designed a variety of visit options with you in mind. You can choose from one of our many visit options including a general campus visit, an academic program visit or even a virtual option like our virtual student panel.
To get started, choose the visit option you would like to explore.
In-Person Visit Options
We have resumed in-person visits with the health and safety of our visitors and campus community as our top priority. Per the CDC's guidelines, our group sizes will be small and all visitors will be required to wear a mask. As safety guidelines allow, we will add additional in-person visits including academic program and special interest visits.
