The best way to evaluate a college or university is to spend time with its students, faculty, and administrators.
Reservations can be made in the following ways:
Once you have requested a tour, please wait to receive a confirmation from us before finalizing travel plans. If your requested date and time is available, we will confirm your tour appointment with a confirmation e-mail message or via a phone call (if no e-mail is provided). Our tour confirmations are sent individually - please allow us 48 hours to confirm your visit. Please be sure to monitor your SPAM box as well - we have discovered gmail addresses are sending our confirmations to spam.

We do not offer tours on dates when the campus is closed. We also have need to close tours due to peak season and large numbers of early tour reservations. We will do our best to accommodate all visitors, however, it is not always possible due to space limitations. If we are unable to accommodate a guided tour for you, we will be happy to supply you with information on taking a self-guided tour - just stop in the Welcome Center.
