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 faculty, staff & students and taking a guided campus tour to really get to know Valpo. 

Masks are optional for all fully vaccinated individuals, which includes the COVID-19 booster. Masks are required at all times for all unvaccinated individuals and those who have not received the COVID-19 booster.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

Join us for a Personal Visit

Personal visits are reserved for high school seniors, juniors, sophomores, and transfer students. Personal visits include a campus tour, a conversation with an admission counselor, and an optional faculty appointment.

If you do not have an appointment and are in the area, stop by the Duesenberg Welcome Center adjacent to the main entrance on U.S. 30. The Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except during the holidays). Ask if we can accommodate you with a tour, or pick up a self-guided tour map from the acrylic box outside of the main door.
