It's never too early to see how you will fit in at California University of Pennsylvania.
Your visits start at the Welcome Center on the first floor of the Eberly Science and Technology Building. This is the place to pick up literature about the University, watch a video and take a campus tour with a student ambassador. The best part is that you can choose the way you cruise around campus.
Types of tours
Do you prefer a personal tour with a student guide who can share knowledge about buildings, programs and day-to-day life on campus? Then contact us to register for customized 2.5-hour tour and question-and-answer session.Tours are conducted between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. At the end of the tour, you will sit down with one of our admissions counselors so you can ask specific questions.
Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Stop in the Welcome Center, take a map and go. You're welcome to walk the campus and spend as much time as you like taking it all in. While you're visiting, spend some time admiring the unique sculptures on campus or enjoying the remarkable plantings in the University Arboretum.
