We hear this time and time again; and it’s true that there really is no better way to get to know our campus and community than to visit and experience it for yourself.

Campus tours are generally offered Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., year-round, and run for one hour. During the school year, visitors may sit in on classes, eat in the dining hall, and talk to current students and faculty. Whenever you come, we invite you to schedule* a tour of campus, meet with admission staff for an interview, and ask lots of questions. Click here to schedule a visit to COA.   

*Please note: tours may not be available every day. Be sure to check our schedule to see available tour dates. 

We also have several admission events  each year, such as our Fall Open House —these provide the opportunity to get to know campus and meet other prospective students and their families. 

During the school year, a guest room is available for prospective students who would like to stay overnight in a campus residence. If you would like to stay on campus, please call at least two weeks in advance to confirm space availability.
