Visit Campus

Thank you for your interest in visiting the University of St. Francis.

Determining the best fit for your educational future depends on several factors. One of those factors is how you feel when you come to campus and visit with current students, meet with an admission counselor, sit in on a class or talk with a coach. We encourage you to visit us on campus early in your college search process and come back more than once to see for yourself if the University of St. Francis is the place you want to call home. We offer several dates and options for campus visits and encourage you to select the option below that best meets your needs.

Please register online below, email or call (815) 740-2270 or (800) 735-7500.
