Visiting campus is the best way to determine if a college or university is the right fit for you. Stepping on campus, you'll see that we're not just a premiere residential university with first-rate academics. It's our focus on our students' success and development -- inside and outside of the classroom -- that we believe will define your journey at Slippery Rock University.
If you are a junior or senior in high school, and you are interested in a presentation and campus tour. Please schedule ahead for a visit. Visits last approximately 2.5 hours.
Summer Showcase (Saturday, June 20 or Friday, August 14) is a great way to get a jump start on the college search. You'll learn about the admission process, meet with faculty from your intended major, tour campus, and eat lunch in one of the dining halls.
SRU offers three open house programs in the fall which we refer to as Saturday Showcase. Seniors in high school, along with their parents/guest typically attend these programs; although juniors are always welcome (there will be a junior open house offered in the spring). Saturday Showcase is a comprehensive visit program in which you'll see campus, talk with current students, meet faculty, and learn about the admissions process. The dates for this fall are October 17, October 24, and November 7, 2015. Reservations are required and you may do so by clicking here.
If you are a transfer student -- meaning you have completed high school and have started your college career elsewhere -- please schedule a meeting with one of our transfer counselors. Transfer student appointments usually take less than 1 hour.
If you are a high school or community organizer and are interested in planning a visit for a group of up to 45 students, please learn more about our Bus Visit Program. We ask that visiting groups coordinate and cover the expense of transportation to and from SRU. On rare occasions, SRU will arrange transportation. Please indicate on the Bus Visit Request Form if you are unable to provide transportation.
Can’t make it to campus? That’s OK!

If you would like to request a special accommodation for your tour, for example the use of a wheelchair, please let us know prior to your visit so that we may prepare. (Please understand, our student tour guides are not available to assist persons in wheelchairs with moving through the campus tour. If assistance is needed, we recommend that a family member or friend be available for support).
