Visit and Tour
When selecting a college, it's important to tour campus in person, when possible, to take in the views and perspectives. We're positive you'll like what you see at Fredonia!
Student and parents frequently comment how Fredonia's 256 acres features a lot of green space and a small building footprint, allowing for spacious views yet a small campus feel. Fredonia's admissions team has arranged a multitude of ways for students to visit campus in whatever manner students are most comfortable; whether it's individually, with family, or with small or large groups. If you can't make it in person, Fredonia's virtual tour will put you in the middle of the Fredonia campus wherever you are.
The Campus Host Program is on select days beginning Sunday, February 10, 2019 through Wednesday, May 1, 2019. and is only for students who have applied and have been academically accepted at Fredonia. A campus host visit is typically a 24-hour shadowing experience and includes opportunities to attend classes, stay in one of the residence halls, eat in the dining halls and get a feel for what it is like to be a Fredonia student. Visiting students are paired with a Fredonia student within their academic area to be their host for the duration of their visit.
