VISIT AND TOUR CAMPUS
See us to believe us.
By now, you may have read a little (or a lot) about us, seen some images of our campus, and also maybe heard from a few current students or alums about their experiences here on our campus.
We’d love to show and tell you more—in fact, we believe the best way to get to know us and our solid opportunities is to visit our departments, classrooms, athletic facilities, library, performing and visual arts venues, food and recreation centers, and beautiful pathways within our park-like, 150-acre campus. If you haven’t seen our campus, you’re missing out.
We tailor each visit to you and your interests. Let us know if you’d like to tour campus, have lunch, attend a class, meet with a faculty member or coach, chat with financial aid, stay overnight in a residence hall, or attend a performing arts or athletic event. To schedule a personal visit, please contact the Office of Admission at 815-226-4050. Or you can schedule a visit right now >>
Attend one of our annual Future Regent Visit Days during the fall and winter months. These days are ‘can’t miss’ events! Of course, you’ll enjoy the basics with an admission presentation, campus tour, lunch, and time with financial aid and coaches. But, each Future Regent Visit Day has a few extras such as meeting professors, experiments, fun themes, and/or a different approach to the campus tour (scavenger hunt, anyone?). Join us!
You’ve been admitted, now it’s time to start narrowing down your options. Join us for a special day designed to give you an inside look at what it’s like to be a student at Rockford University. You’ll experience an interactive class with a RU professor, customize your day with fun from different parts of campus life, and enjoy as show stopping lunch, modeled off one of our most popular Student Activities events. Sign up for your personalized schedule today!
