Important Details for a Safe Visit
  • Masks/facial coverings are mandated in the state of Ohio, so we ask that you please wear them throughout the duration of your visit day for the safety of our University community.
  • Our lobby has been reconfigured to ensure the practice of social distancing which will be encouraged throughout the duration of your visit day.
  • We welcome one additional guest each in addition to the prospective student visitor.
  • While it may not be possible to coordinate in-person meetings with faculty, they can be available to meet with you virtually by request.
  • Due to social distancing and classrooms being at full capacity, we are currently not able to conduct class visits.
  • For the safety of our current students, we are not able to coordinate overnight stays in the Residence Halls. Additionally, the Residence Halls are not open to anyone who are not currently living there. Keep an eye out for virtual tours of the Residence Halls.
  • While you are here you will be able to meet with an Admissions counselor, one of our coaches from our NCAA division III athletic programs, take a walking tour of campus and attend noon Mass!
