The Mesa Experience Visitation Programs gives future students and their families the opportunity to experience firsthand the energy and excitement going on at Colorado Mesa University. These comprehensive, one-day visitations allow you to tour the campus, meet and talk with current students, and enjoy lunch served by our dining service provider. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions addressing such topics as financial aid, housing, admissions, athletics and student life.
If you can't attend one of the day-long Mesa Experience Visitation Program we invite you to tour our campus. Tours are offered year-round, with the exception of holidays and some blackout dates. During the academic year tours are offered on Monday and Friday at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday at 1 p.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m. During the summer months (mid-May thru mid-August), tours are offered Monday - Friday at 9 a.m.
Led by knowledgeable Colorado Mesa University student ambassadors, tours allow you the opportunity to see campus and hear from current students about their experience at Colorado Mesa University. Plan on spending about two hours with us during a visit. Following the tour you’ll receive an information session from an admissions counselor where you can ask questions and get assistance with the admissions process. Tours begin at the Admissions Welcome Center.
We ask visitors to call or sign-up at least one week in advance of the visit date. To schedule a tour, call the Admissions Office at 800.982.6372 ext. 1875, or click the registration link below.
Group Tours are designed for organizational groups, student groups and other groups larger than five people. Led by knowledgeable Colorado Mesa University student ambassadors, group tours can accommodate any group size. To ensure your group’s needs are met, please let us know if you have any special requests, like an admissions presentation, a tour of the Western Colorado Community College campus or a meal in the Colorado Mesa University dining hall. Register for a group tour.
Our Mesa@Night information sessions are designed for adult learners who are looking to earn a degree while balancing work and/or family. Learn about our flexible offerings on the first Tuesday of every month from one of our admissions counselors. Register for or learn more about these information sessions.
