Take a Tour Thursday's

Academic Snapshot LogoAre you interested in taking an in-person tour of the department and/or the University?  If so, the Undergraduate Admissions Office invites you, and up to three guests, to register for a tour of the main campus and/or the Department of Art & Design. 

Campus tours are offered on weekdays at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm.  Each session will consist of a 60-75-minute student-guided tour of University’s 225-acre campus and a 20-30-minute overview of the University and its admissions process.  As much of your campus tour will be outdoors, please dress accordingly, bring a face covering, and consider a water bottle.  Visitors are encouraged to wear a face-covering when outside when appropriate social distancing is not possible. 

In addition to campus tours, the Department of Art and Design will be offering in-person Academic Shapshots on select Thursdays throughout the Fall semester from noon-1:00 pm.  These in-person sessions will cover a thorough review of our various degree options, a Q&A session, as well as a tour of Breidenstine Hall.  If interested, you can work with the department representative hosting your event to arrange a classroom visit.


Guests registering for these events typically schedule a morning or afternoon campus tour with the midday Academic Snapshot Thursday session to get the most out of their visit.  After securing your registration, the Office of Admissions will provide health, safety, and parking information in your confirmation email.
