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 sitting in on a class, talking to a professor, or spending the night in one of our residence halls to really get to know Valpo. Choose the visit that best meets your interests!
All visits to Valparaiso University have been cancelled through May in response to the COVID-19 effect on our nation. However we are offering Live Information Sessions for Transfer Students every Friday at Noon-Central Time. You can register here!

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’re a high school senior, you can even 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!
