ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University is offering prospective students and their families the opportunity to visit campus this spring during Saturday Campus Tours. While on campus, participants will meet with Admissions staff, tour the Athens campus and have lunch in the dining hall.

Saturday Campus Tours are scheduled for April 23, 2022 and May 14, 2022 from 10 a.m. to noon both days. Reservations are required and may be made online here.

“Saturday tours have become pretty popular with our prospective students,” stated William Allen, Interim Vice President and Chief Enrollment Officer. “While classes are not in session on Saturday, it does allow busy families the time to relax and get to know Concord.”

“Enjoy lunch in our dining hall and then you could have the rest of the day to explore the region around campus before you head back home,” Allen said. “We list plenty of off campus options on our visit page. If families like to hike, fish, camp, etc., it is a great way to spend some time together.”

Students interested in learning more about Concord University are also invited to set up a traditional in-person campus tour. Tours are available at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and reservations are required. To sign-up for a weekday tour, please click here.

For those who can’t visit campus, but want to learn more, a virtual tour is just a click away. This tour offers prospective students, parents and educators a 360 degree look at the Concord’s buildings, grounds and additional features.

Clickable features encourage tour participants to explore the campus and learn interesting facts about the University. Visitors have the option to submit a request to learn more, schedule a visit or apply online. To take the virtual tour of Concord’s campus, click here.
