 Bus Visit Program  



Thank you for your interest in Slippery Rock University of PA!  We welcome groups from high schools and community organizations throughout the year, on a space available basis.  The Bus Visit Program is geared towards academically prepared high school students who have an interest in attending SRU.  These visits offer an excellent opportunity for your students to explore the benefits of a “Rock Solid” education and get their questions answered!

Groups of up to 45 high school students (and a few chaperones) are offered a presentation with an admissions counselor, student-led panel discussion and campus tour, and lunch in Boozel Dining Hall.  An optional Academic and Student Affairs presentation is available, upon request. 

A sample itinerary includes:

  • 9:50am – Arrive to Campus, North Hall Welcome Center
  • 10:00am – Admissions Presentation
  • 10:20am – Student Panel Discussion
  • 10:40am – Department Presentation (optional)
  • 11:00am – Campus Tour
