visit options for summer 2017

Campus Tours

Current students lead one-hour tours. Tours depart at: 

  • Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. 
  • Tuesday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.   
Counselor Appointments

Meet the person who could be reading your application. Appointments are available most week days between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.  During your appointment, you can ask questions and get answers. 

If you want to expand upon your essay or transcripts, ask to schedule an interview. Your family can join for an appointment afterward, if time allows. We suggest scheduling the interview within a one- to two-month window of when you apply.

For an added experience be sure to register for a Summer Visit Day, a half-day SPU preview event, with dates in June, July, and August!

Special Appointments (october-may only)*

*Unavailable June-September.

Come see SPU in action! With at least 2 weeks' notice, you can request up to 2 special appointments for your customized campus visit. You could meet with a professor, current student, or staff member, and you can also request to visit a class and experience the academic side of SPU life. Please let us know in the comments box when you register if you would like to request a special appointment in addition to a campus tour and/or an appointment with an admissions counselor. Don't forget to check dates to avoid.
