VISIT CAMPUS

A campus visit is one of the best ways to tell if Southwest Minnesota State University is the right fit for you. Walk around campus and see how it feels to be at SMSU. Students may choose to visit during the week, on a Mustang Saturday, or on a Special Visit Day throughout the year.

VIRTUAL VISIT

Southwest Minnesota State University knows that it is not always possible for students to visit our campus in person, so we will provide some great resources for you to start to get to know SMSU and the Mustang Family virtually!
