Visiting Campus

There are two options for students to visit Ursuline's beautiful campus. Help students plan their visit today!

1. Admission Information Session and Campus Tour

  • This 2-hour one-on-one visit experience begins with an information session given by an Admission Counselor. An experienced counselor will take students through the process of admission, provide financial aid and scholarship information, as well as give students insights into our values and mission as an institution. After the session, students will have the option to take a walking tour of campus led by a current student! On this 45-minute tour students will see classrooms, residence halls, and dining facilities.

2. Senior Super Visit

  • For students looking to do a little more on campus, our Super Senior Visits include a full day of personalized activities coordinated just for them! Students will have the opportunity to meet with a faculty member, sit in on a class, have coffee with a current student, and if they're an athlete, speak with one of our coaches. If students are ready to start making those final decision about which college is the right fit, this visit is definitely for them!
