We recognize that the campus visit experience can be an important part of the college search process for students (and families). At WMU, we are hosting small, in-person tours while also being conscious of safety measures and physical distancing for both our campus community and visitors. As such, our Admissions team is prepared to offer you both virtual and in-person options. Should you choose the in-person visit experience, you will receive a student-led, 60-minute walking tour on our amazing campus and learn about all the possibilities and opportunities awaiting you at WMU.
We’re excited to welcome you to Kalamazoo—in person—to introduce you to life as a Bronco. Campus visits are one of the best ways for you to view student life first-hand—see our favorite spaces like Sangren Plaza and Miller Fountain—in other words, begin to imagine what life will be like as a Bronco!
