Visit Campus

The best way to get to know us is to come see for yourself. You already know about our quality academic reputation, but we’re well known for our beautiful campus, too. Come be our guest! You’re welcome to visit campus anytime. We offer individual visits daily (including Saturday's). However, we strongly encourage you to attend one of our Preview Days held throughout the year. You and your guests* are invited to tour campus, hear presentations on academics, co-curricular activities, financial aid, campus life and more, as well as eat lunch in Ames Dining Hall.

* Up to 3 meals will be provided for visiting students and their guests
