If our academic reputation isn’t enough to make your decision easy, our beautiful community should. Our 136-acre campus provides our students with ample space and access to the outdoors. Whether rowing across Bryan Lake, speeding down the zip-line ropes course, mountain biking campus trails, or just relaxing on the quad, you’ll find your favorite place. Oh, and did we mention that we have award-winning faculty and some of the lowest student debt rates in the state?

In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have adjusted campus tours to reflect campus's safety measures. Virtual experiences are also available. Students will have the opportunity to visit with an Admissions Counselor, current student, professor, and/or extracurricular leader.
On June 8, we began offering prospective students the option to tour campus in person. There are several guidelines that must be followed in order to allow such tours:
The student and family members must complete a pre-screening questionnaire via email in advance of the visit.
Complete pre-screening questionnaire (via email in advance of the visit)
Families will all be greeted and temperature checked before exiting their vehicle(s) + complete on-site screening questionnaire. Temperatures of 100.4 degrees and higher will require the tour to be rescheduled in two weeks.
Tour visitors are limited to 3 (student visitor + up to 2 family members)
Tour guides and visitors must wear masks at all times.
Only tour guides will open/touch building doors.
We have designated bathrooms for visitor use (Brown Chapel Lobby + Wilson Community).
ALL tours must have a wrap-up session with Enrollment Services (these will take place in Flanders); video conferencing with faculty will be via Google Hangout if a student requests faculty interaction.
Adherence to these guidelines is mandatory per our agreement with COVID-19 campus tour committee.
For group tours, contact the admissions office at (870) 307-7250 for rates and reservations. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
