We regularly offer informational sessions with admissions counselors and campus tours led by Student Admissions Representatives. During a special event Nov. 18, you can sit in on miniclasses lead by our world-class faculty, learn about student clubs and organizations, find out how you can get involved in the Sarasota community and interact with faculty, staff and students from all areas across campus.
Campus visits are generally offered Monday through Friday except for some holidays and special event days. Tours take place rain or shine. All admissions visitors should go to our Admissions Welcome Center on the first floor of College Hall (located on our Bayfront campus).
While you are here, you can stop by our student-run Four Winds Café, tour our world-class marine research center, stroll through our historic buildings and meet fellow students and professors. While visiting, you can also speak personally to your Admissions and Financial Aid counselors.
