Campus Visits

In-person campus visits are back for the Fall 2021 semester! They will start on September 22 and continue to December 8.

Each year the GVSU CSO is pleased to welcome approximately 1,000 8th-grade students and 1,0000 11th-grade students to GVSU's main campus. GVSU CSO tours usually last longer than typical campus tours because they take a deep exploration into what is happening at the university. We strongly believe that students that step foot on campus can better envision themselves attending college.

During the visits, students are led around campus by our College Navigators, upper-class students who know the ins and outs of all things GVSU.  A number of the College Navigators were also previously enrolled in a GVSU-authorized charter school. 

Visiting students will get the chance to explore many of the key points around campus, including:

  • Kirkhof Student Center
  • Library
  • Athletic Fieldhouse
  • Living Center
  • Campus Dining Hall
  • Academic spaces
  • Student Support Center

Additional Forms

Visiting schools must have each student complete GVSU's "Minors on Campus" release form before arriving. Schools seeking reimbursement for buses should complete the bus reimbursement form following their visit.
