Virtual Fall Preview

October 12-17 2020

You're invited to explore campus and experience Western from wherever you are during our largest virtual event for students and families who want to learn more about Western. From academic webinars and information sessions, to our main event October 17, there's a whole week of events for you to choose from.


Campus Tours

Offered Most Weekdays and Saturdays Throughout the Year

Experience Western's beautiful campus through two campus tour options. We offer a 90-minute campus-tour-only option. We also offer an option that includes a 60-minute campus tour followed by an optional admission information session. Both offerings include a residence hall viewing (when classes are in session).


Discovery Days

Offered most Fridays Throughout the Academic Year 

Offering a bit more than a campus tour, Discovery Days include a walking tour of campus, an admission presentation with a student/faculty panel, a residence hall viewing, and opportunities to visit academic departments and campus offices.


Recorridos del Campus
