Visit Campus

Visit Campus students on a tour

The best way to get to know a college, its environment, people and offerings is by seeing it in person. We strongly encourage you to visit our campus. There are many options, explained below. There are many ways to visit including Get Acquainted Days (Open Houses), Accepted Student Day, Individual Campus Visits, Weekend Information Sessions and Overnight Visits.

In light of the recent announcement from PA Governor Tom Wolf that lifted travel restrictions in Pennsylvania, we are again able to welcome out-of-state students for in-person visits! 

If you are interested in a virtual tour, please contact your admission counselor or use one of the options below to set up a virtual appointment or a virtual tour. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admission at 800-782-5549 Ext. 2500 or admission@stvincent.edu.
