fredonia students walk across campus

Visit and Tour

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.

Choose your visit experience below.

If you can't get to Fredonia, then bring Fredonia to you! See Fredonia in 360-degree clarity.

Due to the current restrictions related to the coronavirus on public gatherings, the Office of Admissions will be offering many different virtual events to meet the needs of both accepted and prospectve students. Each week we will be offering many types of chats and sessions to make you feel connected to your academic area, campus life, and all that Fredonia has to offer. Everything from daily information sessions to academic discussions with faculty, financial aid sessions and more. 

Check out our Virtual Events Page to see what we are offering this week. Remember to check back often to learn about upcoming events too!

Due to the recent circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus, our Campus Walking Tours and Information Sessions will be temporarily offered in an online format. We still want to answer all your questions and have you learn all about Fredonia, but we don't want to take a chance that we expose you or each other to any chance of the Coronavirus transmission. To date, there have been no suspected Coronavirus cases at Fredonia.

The Campus Walking Tour will now consist of a half-hour presentation from one of our admissions counselors, covering undergraduate admission, financial aid and campus life information at Fredonia. You will then have the opportunity to take a virtual tour of our beautiful campus.

If you are interested in exploring a specific major we encourage you to reach out to the academic area you are interested in.
