About Campus Tours

Campus walking tours are led by current students and last about an hour. You'll look inside academic buildings, the student center, and athletic facilities. Please inform our tour coordinator if you need any specific accommodations.

Before each tour, a 30-minute information session will be presented by an admission counselor. 

If you are a high school counselor, please email seuvisit [at] stedwards.edu to schedule a campus tour.
