Visit Southern

If you haven't seen Southern's beautiful campus for yourself, come visit us. We'd love to show you our new buildings and introduce you to professors and staff who can tell you about the limitless opportunities for study and enrichment that await you here. On a group campus tour, a Southern student will point out campus highlights, and an admissions staff member will talk about Southern's application process and answer any questions you might have. Come experience a real Southern welcome!

Campus Tours

Group campus tours are led by Southern students throughout the week and some Saturday mornings. Tours last about 90 minutes. Tour guides will point out the many campus highlights from our new Science Building, academic buildings, the Adanti Student Center, remodeled residential complexes, sports and dining facilities, and more.

At the conclusion of the tours with information sessions, an Admissions staff member will lead a presentation to talk in detail about Southern's application processes and procedures, as well as field any remaining questions.
