Campus Tours

Daily Tours

When classes are in session, campus tours are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the morning and afternoon, Friday mornings and on select Saturdays at 10 a.m. Summer tour options vary.

Every campus tour provides an opportunity to meet with and hear from our Admissions staff and take a 90-minute walking tour of campus. Your tour will include visits to the Student Center, residence halls and rooms, main classroom buildings, Halle Library, the Olds Recreation Intramural building and other campus areas that interest you. Weekday morning tours include free lunch, additional interaction with students and staff and typically concludes around 1 p.m.

Adviser appointments allow freshmen and transfer students to meet with an EMU admissions adviser and learn more about the admissions process. Our experienced advisers will meet one-on-one with you to:

  • Review the EMU academic programs and majors you're considering. We'll show you which courses are required for a particular degree and how many credit hours are required.
  • Discuss how your previous coursework will be evaluated at EMU once you apply.
  • Share your next steps in being admitted and enrolled at EMU.

Appointments are available at various times.
