Schedule a Tour

When you ask our students why they chose to come to school here, many say they fell in love with our campus during their tour. Please review the information below so that we can help you make the most of your visit.

Our walking tours are led by current students, called University Ambassadors, who are looking forward to your visit and an opportunity to tell you a little about the history of our campus, but more importantly let you know what it's like to live and study here. Our tours run Monday thru Friday  and most are around 2 hours. Some of the best times to visit are early February, early March, June, and September.  The university will be closed Tuesday, July 4, 2017 in observance of the holiday.  We welcome your visit year round and will be ready for you, rain or shine.  


Please refer to the list below to determine which tour is best for you and remember to book at least two weeks in advance.
