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.

From quick to comprehensive, we have programs for every type of visitor.

  • 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.
  • Fall Open Houses: October 25 & November 1
    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. Reservation may be made by clicking on the icon below. Students wishing to transfer to SRU are invited to attend this program as well.  There will be a presentation about the transfer process from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. at each of the programs.

  • If you are not able to visit during the week, or attend one of the SRU Showcase programs, we do offer a group presentation and tour on select SaturdaysFall 2014 Saturday Group Information Sessions are offered October 18, November 8, November 15, and November 22.

  • 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.
