  • Individual Daily Campus Visits

    Want to know how Southwestern prepares you for 21st-century careers as well as our application process and financial aid? Get your questions about academics, student organizations, and life in the residence halls answered during an information session and a student-led tour of our beautiful campus.

    NOTE: On-campus visits follow our most recent campus COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

    Daily Individual Visit Options
  • On-Campus & Virtual Open Houses

    Meet with students, faculty, and admission staff one of our various open house programs throughout the academic year.

  • Virtual Information Sessions

    Can’t come to campus? Let us bring the campus to you! Southwestern hosts weekly virtual information sessions where you can learn about the Southwestern Experience from anywhere! All events are free of charge and open to all prospective students.

  • Admission Interviews

    An interview with an admission counselor is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know you beyond your application. These conversations allow you to highlight your unique combination of interests, involvements, and passions, while exploring how they may find a home at Southwestern.

  • Faculty Contact Request (admitted students only, login required)

    Want to connect with one of your future professors as you reach your decision? Submit this form, and we’ll make the match! This feature is only for students who have been offered admission to Southwestern. Login credentials are the same as for your Personal Application Portal.

  • HS Counselor & IEC Visits


    Large School Group Visits

    NOTE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have temporarily suspended group visits to campus. As an alternative, we invite our counseling colleagues to encourage interested students to engage with us at a virtual info session/virtual college fair or schedule an individual in-person campus visit. If you would like to arrange a virtual group presentation on an individual basis, please contact Christine Bowman at
