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 taking a guided campus tour and chatting with current faculty, staff, and students to really get to know Valpo. Students and families can schedule a campus tour with information session year round or explore larger visit day options at valpo.edu/visit.
