    Information Session and Tour:
     Enjoy a half-hour in-person admissions information session and an hour-and-a-half student-led campus tour. The information session and the tour groups will include multiple registrants and their guests. This tour will be conducted on the western portion of the JMU campus and will include academic buildings, a model residence hall room, the Union and the Quad as well as other stops. The Quad is the location of the most historic buildings on campus, as well as residence halls and administrative buildings.


    Twilight Information Session and Tour - Join us for a half-hour in-person admissions information session and a two hour student-led tour. The information session and the tour groups will include multiple registrants and their guests.  This tour will be conducted mostly on the western portion of the JMU campus and will include academic buildings, a model residence hall room, the Union and the Quad as well as other stops.  The Quad is the location of the most historic buildings on campus, as well as residence halls and administrative buildings.

    WEATHER PERMITTING, the tour will end outside of King Hall, which overlooks the main portions of the campus, and provides unobstructed views to the west of campus, including the Appalachian mountain range for beautiful sunset views.  This is one of our students favorite views! ADVISORY STATEMENT: This tour can be more physically strenuous than our traditional tour, as the route is longer, and includes crossing from one side of Interstate 81 to the other and back and is more hilly than our traditional tour.  Caution is encouraged if guests are unsure of their ability to complete the tour.  

    If you are unable to attend for any reason, please cancel or reschedule your visit online or contact the Office of Admissions at 540-568-5681.
