Visit Centre

About the Campus Visit

Centre offers opportunities to visit campus 6 days a week (no Sunday tours). A visit usually includes a tour of campus and an information session with an admission counselor. Count on being here at least a half day. We recommend arriving in the early morning or early afternoon. Dress comfortably. Conversations and appointments will be informal, so you can wear what you normally wear to school. You can visit with your parents or alone, but we do, of course, encourage parents to come for the visit. Read the Visit FAQ before arriving. It outlines what you should expect from us, and what we expect from you.

Tours are generally led by the Centre Colonel Corps, a trained group of volunteer student guides. Additional appointments may also be available. Let us know when you want to come and what you'd like to do while you're here. We'll prepare an itenerary tailored to your specific requests.


How to Schedule a Campus Visit

You may schedule your visit online. For more information, please e-mail us at admission@centre.edu. A campus visit should be scheduled at least 7 days in advance to allow for planning purposes. Plan ahead a little bit. One week’s notice will give us time to arrange the details of your visit. Priority consideration for appointments is given to those who schedule early.

Individuals not able to plan their trip a week in advance should opt for our daily 2:45 p.m. tour. The visit does not include additional appointments, but is perfect for our guests who delight in a bit of spontaneity.

If registering 3 days before an event or later, students must call the Office of Admission to request their visit at 1-800-423-6236.
