Campus Visits and Virtual Tours

We encourage you to take a limited-capacity, in-person, outdoor campus tour this spring, which we are offering in compliance with current state and local health and safety protocols. In addition to our virtual tour, you may want to sign-up for a live, personalized virtual campus tour with an Admissions Ambassador, including arts- and science-focused options.
