On-Campus Visit

Our in-person campus visit program is currently suspended due to visitor restrictions on-campus. We encourage you to schedule a virtual visit at this time.
In-person visit options for winter semester will be advertised after our winter semester begins in mid-January. Feel free to call the Campus Visit Office with questions.

In-person visits include a campus tour with a current student and a meeting with an admissions counselor. Additional appointments (meetings with faculty members and various other departments on campus, etc.) will be a combination of in-person and virtual experiences, all while you're here on campus. In-person campus visits are subject to change due to new university COVID-19 guidelines, or mandates from the state or federal government. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

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.
