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!

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.

Overnight Visit

In addition to your Personal Visit, stay overnight with an Overnight Student Ambassador in an on-campus residence hall. Enjoy dinner and breakfast in our dining hall. On day two you will have a campus tour, information session, and faculty appointment.

Then you can have lunch with current students and faculty before heading home. Register for Preview Day today!

Explore Engineering Day

Did you know Valpo’s Undergraduate Engineering Program has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report? We’ve created a special Explore Engineering Day just for aspiring engineering students just to tell you all about it.
