Personal Visits

If you are unable to attend one of the Preview Days, we'd still like to visit with you! Feel free to come on a day that works with your schedule and is planned specifically to meet your visit needs. You can register your visit online or call the Undergraduate Admissions Office @ 1.800.33.UNION to schedule your visit. A one-week notice of your visit is appreciated.

Notes for planning your visit

Please select a day and arrival time for your visit. Complete the visit form detailing all you would like to experience while on campus. All visits include an hour and a half campus tour and a thirty minute appointment with an Enrollment Counselor. If the dining hall is open and you have a morning arrival time, we will also include lunch on campus for you and your family if you would like. During the Fall and Spring semesters, you are invited to attend a chapel service held on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00am, stay with a student on campus overnight, and attend a class. A typical campus visit would last approximately four hours.

Please Note that Personal Campus Visits are for the traditional undergraduate programs on the Jackson campus.

  • Wear comfortable clothes. There's no need to wear your fanciest clothes.
  • Relax and be yourself. We want to get to know Who YOU ARE just as much as you want to see who we are.
In the Enrollment Office:
  • When you arrive, let us know if you need anything - coke, water, coffee - whatever.
  • Don't be nervous. We're honored that you are here. Make yourself at home!
During your tour:
  • Our Student Ambassadors will be showing you around. Be sure to keep up with them but try not to get ahead of them. Also, if they need to speak up, don't be afraid to tell them.
  • Say hello to Debbie and Jessica, the Union Station Ladies, and grab some candy while you're there.
  • Tell the Ambassador your area of interest - they will be sure to point it out to you.
  • Ask questions!
The Rest of Your Day:
  • Talk with other students as you see them. Let them tell you about their Union experience.
  • Let us know if there is anything else you would like to do or see...we want you to leave us knowing everything you want to know about Union.
