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.

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)
