Campus Visits

Campus tours offer an excellent insight into life as a CWU Wildcat. As we stroll through campus, we’ll share our personal experiences as students and answer questions. Come visit us soon, meet our student ambassadors, and say hello to your new home!

We are excited to offer in-person campus tours to all prospective students, and guests. Please note, face coverings are no longer required, but guests are free to wear them if they choose.**
