Customized Virtual Campus Visit

Meet one-on-one with a faculty member in your academic area of interest, chat with an admissions counselor, take a video-tour through campus while talking with a current student live and many more options. Our virtual visits are all conducted in-person via virtual ineractions (Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, etc). We have suspended our in-person visits through July, so virtual visits are our only option until August. After August, we will continue with our virtual visit program.

On-Campus Visit

We are planning to begin hosting campus visitors again on August 10, 2020. We hope everything will be ready to welcome you and your family onto campus for an in-person visit. Please note, for the health and safety reasons, we're limiting campus visitors to 5 students (and their families) per day. 

In-person visits include a campus tour with a current student, an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a faculty member in your academic area of interest, chat with an admissions counselor, and so much more!  

(If you're planning a visit before August 10, 2020 or just want to explore campus on your own, download our Self-Guided Walking Campus Tour.

Wildcat Weekend

If you prefer to blend into a crowd and like a bigger production, Wildcat Weekend may be your fit. This is a large, open-house style event where you choose sessions of interest to you, tour campus and take it all in. 

(Please note: the October Wildcat Weekend event will look different this year due to CDC requirements regarding large events. We have some cool options in the works and will update you as soon as they are available. We are planning to host our March Wildcat Weekend event as planned unless there are restrictions still in place preventing large gatherings.)

NMU Student Outside in the Winter

Growing up in the U.P., my family and I visited Marquette often. I have always felt comfortable [in the city], and I decided to come to NMU because it was the only college that truly felt like home.

Other Options for Visiting Campus

Presidential Scholars Competition is an opportunity for high achieving high school seniors to compete for scholarships. Competitions are held in November.

Summer Camps for high school students focus on sports, culture, the environment and more.

Our regular in-person campus visit program is suspended through July. If you are going to be in the Marquette-area during this time, feel free to contact us to talk about what your options may be to visit campus. Please keep in mind due to certain restrictions, our full campus visit experience will not be available.

*This date is subject to change based on CDC and state and federal recommendations. If NMU is able to host in-person visits prior to August 10, 2020, the change will be communicated to all those who have a visit scheduled before then. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
