Visit campus with other prospective students and their families to get a broad overview of Valparaiso University.
Academic presentations are in a group setting by college (and in the College of Arts & Sciences by Division).
If you wish to meet with our NCAA-Division I coaches, rules dictate that you reach out to them directly to schedule an appointment.
