Daily Campus Visits

Almost any day is a great day to visit Marshall’s Huntington, West Virginia, campus through our daily tour and presentation program. We offer tours Monday through Friday (excluding university holidays) at 11 a.m., Mondays and Fridays at 2 p.m., and on select Saturdays at 11 a.m. In order to ensure the best possible tour experience for our visitors, we do limit the number of reservations for each tour session. See if the date you wish to visit is available on our event calendar.

Each tour lasts approximately one hour. Upon finishing the tour, you will receive a presentation from one of our recruitment coordinators to cover the admissions process and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions.

There are many optional activities you can participate in while visiting our campus, such as meeting with a professor, sitting in on a class or visiting the university bookstore. Please let us know when scheduling your tour if you would like to make additional appointments.
