A Visit is Worth a Thousand Words

We can talk to you all day about the quality of Valpo’s academic programs, the commitment of our faculty to your success, or the way you’ll feel right at home as soon as you get to campus. But there’s nothing like taking a tour of campus, chatting with a professor and meeting your admission counselor in person.

Make a Personal Visit (Year-Round)

You make a visit, we’ll make it personal. Take a one-hour walking tour, meet with an admission counselor, and talk to a professor in your area of interest. If you would like, you can extend your visit to an overnight stay with a student ambassador and have dinner and breakfast in our dining hall.

Explore Valpo Days (Summer)

Summer is a great time to see Valpo. At one of our Explore Valpo days, you can take a group tour, join an info session with admission counselors, and then explore downtown Valparaiso or hike in the Indiana Dunes National Park. Register for Explore Valpo today!

Valpo Preview Days (Fall/Spring)

During the academic year, you can join us for a Valpo Preview Day. You’ll take a group tour and attend info sessions that cover everything from academics to admission to student life. Then you can have lunch with current students and faculty before heading home.

Overnight-Shadow Days

If you’re an admitted student, one of our student ambassadors will gladly host you for an overnight visit in our first-year residence hall. And you can attend classes and campus activities with them the next day. It’s a great way to test-drive the Valpo experience. Schedule your Overnight-Shadow this Spring!

Admitted Student Days

An Overnight Student Ambassador will host you in our first-year residence hall. You’ll explore your academic college and attend sessions specific to your major. After lunch with current students, you’ll meet with admissions to talk about financial aid and campus resources. And we’ll have sessions for your parents, too. Register for an Admitted Student Day this Winter.
