Campus tours and information for accepted students and new applicants 

As we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily, we are limited to the amount of visitors we can host on our campus at this time. While we are eager to meet with you all, we are only able to provide a limited number of tours for students who have received an offer of admission for Fall 2021.

We know visiting campus is a crucial and exciting time for our admitted students and we look forward to celebrating all their accomplishments. We hope to be able to offer more in-person tours, for all students, later on this spring and into the summer. Please check back to this page in the coming weeks to access all updates, along with checking your student email frequently for further communication.

Please note we are still offering many virtual tours and we invite you to register online for a virtual campus tour!
