Campus Visit & Virtual Experiences

A campus visit is worth a thousand brochures.

The campus visit experience is often the highest rated decision making factor for college-going students when choosing where they want to enroll. Even though the global pandemic has altered the campus visit experience at colleges nationwide, we are pleased to offer both on-campus and virtual visit experiences. Please note all visits occur in the Eastern Time Zone and we look forward to you joining us soon.

*Campus Visits through the Admissions Office are only for prospective students and their families. If you are not a prospective student, please visit the College’s Visitor Center & Shoppe page or our city’s page to learn how you can safely visit our beautiful region during this time.
