School Counselor Resources

At Valpo, students learn to shine brightly as beacons in their communities. Our Beacons thrive on a close-knit campus and through dedicated faculty, learning to lead in the service of others. Anchored across five colleges, dozens of immersive programs, and the light of our students, Valpo’s brown and gold shine brightly for all.

Grounded, We Radiate

No matter the year or major, our mission is to give our students everything they need to do what they love most here – then radiate everywhere. Our classrooms are where theory becomes practice; our campus is where Beacons discover themselves, their calling, and joy.

Each of our colleges and programs are dedicated to aiding students on their journeys – including our AACSB-accredited College of Business, award-winning nursing program, nationally recognized engineering programs, Phi Theta Kappa recognized College of Arts and Sciences, and our honors college where students dig deeper and go farther. Between career-focused internships and interdisciplinary opportunities, our students go out into the world doing what they love while making a difference.

Radiate Together

See yourself as a Beacon alongside students from your high school! Group visits are available on select Mondays through Thursdays from September to May, giving students a glimpse into the Valpo experience: premier academics, Division I athletics, campus clubs and organizations, sorority and fraternity life, and more.

Up to 50 students per visit are welcome to campus for a walking tour, an admission information session, and meetings with select University offices.
