Tours will take place rain or shine. All admissions visitors should check in at our Admissions Welcome Center on the first floor of Robertson Hall, which is located on the Bayfront campus.
Looking to add something extra to your information session? We offer science and art tours for students specifically interested in checking out our facilities. You can also arrange to have lunch with a current student, meet with a financial aid counselor, and more! Please give us at least a week’s notice if you are interested in adding anything to your visit.
We also offer class visits, giving you the opportunity to sit in on a currently offered class. For more information, check the “Class Visits” tab at the bottom of this box.
