Campus Tours & Visits

The historic and architecturally-significant campus buildings are an attraction all their own. Every year, the university hosts campus tours for new and prospective students and families. Guests can set their own pace with self-guided tours of the beautifully landscaped grounds, including the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden and Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden.
