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 in-person or virtual. Due to the current health crisis, Admissions has implemented new protocols to keep our guests safe while on campus.
