Visit Campus

Make the most out of your campus visit whether it is virtually or in-person. We can customize your visit according to your interests.

COVID-19 Update
July 20, 2020

We are welcoming a limited number of visitors on campus, Monday through Friday. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our campus community and visitors. As a result, visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing throughout their visit as per guidance provided by the CDC and the State of Illinois. We are also asking visitors to submit a pre-visit symptoms questionnaire prior to arrival on campus. Tour guides will be assigned only one family per time slot to allow for the smallest possible number of people on each tour. We will continue to offer virtual experiences that can be tailored to your interests. You can find the most up-to-date information for the College at
