Campus Tours

Students touring campus in front of Sparkman Hall

Visiting campus is the best way to decide if JSU will be your future home.
We'd love to show you around!

Tours are given Monday-Friday by appointment, with the exception of university holidays and breaks

What to Expect

Your personal tour guide will begin your visit by sharing information about the enrollment process of admission, financial aid, housing and student life. Next, you will visit a residence hall, the student commons building and the wellness center. If you're interested in classroom or instructor appointments as part of your tour, we'll try our best to accommodate your request if you'll kindly call ahead to schedule. 

Weekday Visits

JSU is nicknamed the “Gem of the Hills” for a reason. The best way to learn why is to come on a weekday and visit. There are many benefits to visiting us on a weekday, such as:

  • You’ll receive smiles and waves from our students on the “Friendliest Campus in the South,” as they head to their classes.
  • You can check out our assortment of dining facilities and see why the Jack Hopper Dining hall is always busy.
  • Our enrollment offices (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Scholarships) are open, so you can come in and ask your questions in person.
  • Our buildings are open so you can go into an actual classroom, academic building, or other facility to see where you will spend the majority of your time at Jacksonville State University.

Weekend Visits

For the reasons above, we would prefer for our prospective students to visit us on a weekday. Please understand that our academic buildings and campus offices (Including Admissions, Financial Aid, and Scholarships) are not open on Saturdays. We also understand that visiting on a weekday might be difficult for some families. To inquire about opportunities for Saturday visits, please contact the Visitor Center.
