The college experience. Your new home away from home. Freedom, excitement, new friends, new ideas and choices to make about your future. You’ve got a lot ahead of you, and there’s no better way to find out what it will be like than to visit Ship for yourself!

Check out the options below to see which visiting opportunity is right for you. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the Office of Admissions.

Virtual Visits

Whether you've been to our campus before or it's your first time, our open houses are a great way to experience what it means to be a part of the Ship community. Offered several times a year, our open houses give you and your family the chance to:

  • Tour the campus
  • See where you will be living
  • Speak with professors
  • Talk with current students
  • Learn about sports and clubs
  • Attend academic sessions
  • Meet with academic deans and alumni
  • Speak to our financial aid experts

While our on-campus events are postponed until further notice, we are hosting online Ship 2 You sessions, including our virtual tour. The information is the same as you would get from a Raider Day Visit, and features interactive chat and real-time answers from our counselors.

Campus Visits

Is Ship right for you? We think so, but you don't have to take our word for it. Join us for one of our daily Raider Day visits where you will learn more about the Ship experience and go on a student-led campus tour.

Admitted Student Day is a great way for admitted students and their guests to further explore Ship as they make their final college decision. Students will get an inside look into academic programs, student life and our campus.

Register for Admitted Student Day.

If you are a representative from a high school or community-based organization and would like to bring a group of prospective students to our campus, group visits are the perfect fit. During your visit you will receive a personalized presentation followed by a student-led campus tour.

Please complete the Group Visit Inquiry Form to help us personalize your visit.

Our admissions staff is always out and about to tell everyone why Ship is it! You can find us at college fairs and other events in or near your town.
