Visit Campus

Due to COVID-19, we are providing virtual campus visits. Contact us to set up a time with an admission counselor for a Zoom, Facetime or Skype meeting. If you would rather come to campus, we will be opening up on campus visits again at a later date. We apologize for this inconvenience. To schedule a campus visit, please use our Online Visit Scheduler.


We'd love to see you on 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.


Daily Visits Include:

  • Presentation from an Admission Counselor
  • Campus tour with a current student
  • Additional meetings with faculty member, advisor or coach (upon request and availability)
  • A one-on-one meeting with an Admission Counselor
  • Optional lunch before or after visit

Weekday campus visits are available Monday - Friday at 9am and 1pm.

If you would like to have lunch on campus, you may do so after the 9am visit or prior to the 1pm visit at no extra charge to you. If you wish to meet with SMSU faculty, advisors or coaches, we can arrange for those before or after the visit as well. These appointments are based on availability.
