Visit Opportunities

Visiting our University is the best way to get a feel for what it's like to learn and live here as a student.

The best way to find out if we're a good fit is to visit our campus for yourself. We encourage high school and transfer students to attend one of our visit days (listed below) or arrange an individual appointment. Teachers and school counselors can also arrange group visits.

Fall Application Days

Drop in anytime! No appointment required.

It's not too late to enroll for fall! Drop in between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on a Tuesday in August. You'll be able to:
