Self-Guided Campus Tours

Self-guided tours are offered at select times throughout the week. Please register for the time slot you will be on campus. Registration helps us to limit congestion. 

You can get a self-guided tour booklet outside the Bulldog Resource Center at 25 Solon Campus Center. Face coverings are required at all times while inside campus buildings. 

Also, keep in mind: offices are not open, and you could run into locked doors along the way. If you want to meet with an Admissions Counselor, please contact your counselor to see if they are available. If they are not available, they can refer you to another staff member who is. Counselors are not available for drop-in meetings without an appointment. Find your counselor at
