JSU Home » Admissions » Campus Tours & Events

A campus tour is the best way to find out if Jacksonville State University is Where You're Going. We welcome you to visit our university to discover our learning-centered campus and all of the opportunities that await you here.

We offer campus tours by appointment Monday through Friday. Additionally, we host Preview Days on select Saturdays in the fall and spring that feature tours of our campus, information sessions on housing and student financial services, and academic and student life browse sessions.

Campus tours last approximately one hour and begin with a short information session covering the basics of admission, student financial services, housing, and student life. A JSU tour guide then takes you across our campus in a university vehicle.
