How would you like to visit
Valparaiso University?

Personal Visit

High School Seniors, your personal visit includes a walking tour of campus, meeting with an Admission Counselor, and one appointment with a faculty member in your academic interest area.*

*Please note: Select your primary academic interest area. Classes are not in session during our breaks so a faculty appointment may be unavailable. As this is an important aspect of your visit to campus, you may want to choose a date when classes are in session. Choosing a date less than two weeks away can make it difficult for us to schedule a faculty appointment. You’ll receive your personalized schedule upon your arrival.


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.

Scheduling A
Personal Visit?

It's best to look at dates two weeks in advance so we can schedule a visit that suits your needs; less than two weeks could mean the date and time you desire is already filled to capacity, and that a faculty member is not available to meet with you.
