Academic Appointments

Academic Appointments are available by request for students who want to know a bit more about their intended major! You can request an academic appointment on your tour reservation form. Please note that appointments are based on faculty availability and are not guaranteed. If available, your academic appointment will be scheduled for either 9:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. (before your scheduled tour), or for 12:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m. (directly following your tour). Please request academic appointments at least 7 business days in advance, to allow our office time to communicate with faculty.

If you have questions or concerns about tours or academic appointments, please contact Nora Beerman.

In the event of campus closures due to inclement weather, you will be notified via the email address and phone number provided on your reservation as soon as the information is available. Closures will also be posted here.

How can I make sure my friends and I are on the same tour?

As long as you and your friends submit a reservation for the same date and time you will be in the same tour group. Please make sure every prospective student in your group fills out their own reservation (do not just list them as guests on your reservations) so we will have the most accurate information when you arrive.

Will the tour still happen if it is raining or there is inclement weather?

We will only cancel a tour in the event of severe weather or if the University closes due to inclement weather. Please be sure to dress for the weather as we do give tours in the rain and/or cold. Inclement weather announcements will be made at the top of this page. We will also send cancellation information via the text message and email address you provide on your reservation with as much notice as possible.

Can you set up a meeting with a coach or athletics staff member for me?
