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.

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

We also have several admission events each year, such as our Fall Open House—these provide the opportunity to get to know campus as well as 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.
