Daily Campus Visit

Uncover what you can offer the world because of what you start here

The best way to get to know Emporia State University is to visit us on campus! Our daily visit is a personalized, small group experience packed with information you need to know about ESU. These visits feature an admissions, financial aid and scholarship presentation, campus tour, and an academic appointment with a representative from the academic department that you're interested in.

Masks are recommended but not required to be worn in campus buildings. We can supply you with a mask if you would like one. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or are currently awaiting results for a COVID-19 test, we ask you to postpone your visit to ESU.
