Personal Visits

We invite high school and transfer students to schedule a personal visit to explore Valparaiso University’s programs, activities, and campus life.

We want your visit to be a memorable experience that will help you decide that Valpo is right for you.

Personal visits are available most Mondays through Fridays and begin at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, or 2 p.m. Central Time. (We are in the same time zone as Chicago.) If weather does not permit a walking campus tour, our tour guides will provide you with a virtual tour. Please note that the University will be closed Friday, April 3, through Sunday, April 5, to celebrate Easter weekend.

Your personalized visit might include:

  • A campus tour
  • A discussion with a professor in your area of academic interest
  • A meeting with an admission counselor

You may purchase lunch (cash only) in the Cafe or Founders Table in the Harre Union.

If you wish to meet with one of our NCAA-Division I coaches, please contact the coach directly to schedule an appointment.

Spanish Language Options

También se puede hacer cita con un interprete bilingüe, si le ayudaría a Ud. utilizar ese servicio.

Tours of the University are offered in Spanish, if requested. You may also request the assistance of a bilingual interpreter .
