Visit Alvernia


Overnight Visit

An overnight visit can be an important part of the college selection process, so we encourage you to stay on our campus to find out what it’s like to be an Alvernia student for one night.

While you're here, you’ll have the opportunity to attend classes, check out student activities, meet and make friends with current students, eat in the dining hall, and spend the night in a residence hall with your student host. Who knows, you might even meet your future roommate! This experience will allow you to experience AU campus life firsthand and show you all that Alvernia University has to offer. Overnight visits are available Sunday through Thursday nights and are intended for students who have completed an application for admission.

Request a Visit

Please contact us at least two weeks prior to your anticipated visit so we can arrange your stay. The best way to schedule is to email our Undergraduate Admissions overnight & shadow visit coordinator Samantha Brockway, but you can also call her directly at 610-685-3423. After we get your request, we’ll contact you to learn more about the dates you're available and what you want to do while you're on campus - such as classes you might want to attend or meetings you would like to arrange (financial aid, professors, coaches, etc). Please also feel free to contact our main Office of Undergraduate Admsissions at 610-796-8269 (888-ALVERNIA).

Visit Confirmation

Prior to your stay, you will receive a confirmation packet including a campus map, directions to the university and what you will need to bring with you for your visit. We will also include a copy of our Medical/Conduct form that must be returned before your arrival.

All Campus Overnight students should report to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions on the second floor of the Student Center between 3:00 and 5:00pm to meet their student hosts. If you need to arrive at a different time or need to cancel, please call 610-796-8269 or email us.

Shadow Visits - Spend a Day in Class

Schedule a Shadow Visit to experience academic life at Alvernia University from an insider’s point of view. You could contribute to a class discussion, watch your peers working in a science lab or just hang out with current students to chat about campus life - but one thing is certain - you'll come away with a great sense of the collaborative, enlightening and fun environment at Alvernia.

Shadow Visits are scheduled according to your interests, and can include lunch and a campus tour if you wish. You can also meet with an Admissions Counselor or Financial Aid representative to discuss your specific plans. Shadow Visits can be scheduled for Monday through Friday by submitting a request to Samantha Brockway by email or 610-685-3423. You can also call our main Office of Undergraduate Admsissions (610-796-8269).

Note: Please contact the Admissions Office (610-796-8269) at least two weeks prior to your intended shadow visit date in order to allow for us to arrange for a host and give notice to the faculty of your choice.
