Campus walking tours give our guests a look into the life of Fredonia students. Tours are led by current students who share their stories while presenting an overview of the university. If you are interested in exploring a specific major we encourage you to reach out to the academic area to meet with a professor either before or after your tour. Each campus tour is preceded by a half-hour presentation from one of our admission counselors, covering undergraduate admission and financial aid at Fredonia.

Visit Duration: 2 hours (30 minute Information Session, 90 minute Campus Tour)

Our professors look forward to meeting with you to discuss what your future will look like here at Fredonia. To insure the best experience, please contact the academic area at least one week in advance as our faculty have busy teaching and advising schedules.

If you are planning to participate in an Admissions Tour we encourage you to schedule your academic meeting before 10:00 a.m. or after 12:00 p.m. if attending a morning tour, OR before 2:00 p.m. if attending an afternoon tour.
