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. 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 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.
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.
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.
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. You and your parents can tour the campus and our interactive engineering labs, have lunch with students and faculty, and meet with admission and financial aid counselors.
If you’re an admitted student, a student ambassadors 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!
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.
Explore Chemistry Day
High school seniors: are you wondering if Chemistry may be the major for you? Spend an afternoon with us, exploring the field. You will participate in labs with current students, get to know our faculty, take a campus tour, and join an info session with admission counselors.
