WOU offers many different visitation programs and Preview Days to give prospective students a chance to see what life on campus is like and a feel for the university. However, there are only so many offered per term. If none of the special visitation program dates fit into your schedule, there is always the option to create your own individual campus tour day.
Make sure to plan ahead, as the office needs time to approve each request. Requests must be made one week early if you would like to meet with an admissions counselor, and 2-3 weeks early if you would like to meet with anyone else, such as a representative from the Honors Program or a professor from a certain area. Also, plan out what time you would like to request the tour for. If it’s between 10 and 11 a.m., the residence halls are not included in the tour. While tours later in the day do include the residence halls.
Everyone attending a tour is encouraged to wear comfortable shoes. A jacket and umbrella are advised during colder months. Here are some more tips for making the most out of your individual campus tour.
If you’re still having trouble finding the time to make a trip to campus, consider taking a virtual tour from the comfort of your own home!
