Campus tours

In response to recent University announcements, daily campus tours have be suspended from Tuesday, March 17 through Saturday, April 25, 2020 in order to minimize interpersonal contact to slow the potential spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Starting April 27 and continuing until May 11, campus visits are currently scheduled, but with modifications. If you wish to register for a traditional in-person campus tour, please use the button below. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow all state and federal guidelines.
