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 chatting with current students, talking to a professor, or spending the night in one of our residence halls to really get to know Valpo. On-Campus visits to Valparaiso University have been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 effect on our nation, so please join us on a virtual visit.
The Virtual Valpo Experience
On-campus visits to Valparaiso University have been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 effect on our nation. As we navigate this unprecedented time together, Valpo Admission is committed to providing you with the best experience in your college search journey as currently possible, including a virtual tour and live information sessions.
Make a Personal Visit (Year-Round)
When Valpo resumes on-campus operations, if you make a visit, we’ll make it personal. Take a one-hour walking tour and meet with an admission counselor. If you’re a high school senior, you can even talk to a professor in your area of interest and extend your visit to an overnight stay with a student ambassador and have dinner and breakfast in our dining hall.
Admitted Student Days
Get to know Valpo just a little bit better before you commit. An Overnight Student Ambassador will host you in our first-year residence hall. The next day, 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 and workshops for your parents, too.
If you’re an admitted student, a student ambassador will gladly host you for an overnight visit in a 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!
In addition to your Personal Visit, stay overnight with an Overnight Student Ambassador in an on-campus residence hall. Enjoy dinner in our dining hall. On day two you will have a campus tour, information session, and faculty appointment.
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.
Did you know Valpo’s Undergraduate Engineering Program has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top in our nation? A virtual visit is currently the best way to experience Valpo Engineering. You’ll be introduced to our engineering facilities & interactive labs through our online campus tour. And Valpo’s faculty would love to meet with you virtually! Email Assistant Dean Laura Sanders to set this up (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Seniors who visit with us in Valpo’s College of Engineering in 2019–2020 will receive $400 off of their first semester in engineering at Valpo. (Yes, the virtual visit with a professor counts!)
