Campus Tours
Campus tours are offered daily (Monday through Friday)for future students while the University is in session. These visits include information on academics, scholarships, housing, student life, and costs. This is followed by about a one-hour walking tour and free lunch. Call or schedule an online appointment to visit!

There are select visits on Saturdays, known as Dawg Days. The event begins at 9 a.m. and goes to 2 p.m. This includes an admissions presentation, a campus tour, and a meal at the Rock Café.
Overnight Visits
Overnight visitation is allowed on select Thursdays for high school juniors and seniors. It offers a unique opportunity where the students can experience campus life including a tour, eating in the dining halls, and viewing an admissions presentation. Students are then able to spend the night in a student ambassador's residence hall.

The overnight visits are on a first-come, first-served basis and must be registered at least two weeks in advance. For more information or to schedule a visit, contact the Office of Admissions at (800) 4-FERRIS or e-mail admissions@ferris.edu.
