We want to welcome you and your family to Alvernia in a socially distanced, safe way to help you see campus and experience the many advantages Alvernia offers. At this time, weekend and virtual visits are the best ways to meet and chat. Please choose what suits you from the options below.


Weekend Visits - December 5 & 6 / December 12 &13

Come see us on a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon during weekends in November and December. These appointments are for one family per timeslot, and feature a meeting with an Admissions Counselor and a campus tour with a student guide. For safety, masks and completion of a COVID questionnaire are required for all visitors.

Choose your your appointment time - hourly on Saturdays (12/5 & 12/12) from 9am to noon or Sundays (12/6 & 12/13)  from 1pm to 4pm - by clicking on the date of your choice in our online calendar.


Big Visit Day - Monday, November 30th

This Monday after Thanksgiving is traditionally a big day for students making decisions about college, so we have designed a day of safe visits so that you and your guests can come to campus for your own individual appointment with an Admissions Counselor and tour. Appointments will run hourly from 9am to 3pm, so click on November 30th on the calendar to reserve the time you like best!


Virtual Campus Tours at Noon on Tuesdays & Thursdays

Our daily online visits feature a campus tour led by a student tour guide and a live, face-to-face counselor Zoom meeting to answer your questions. To schedule your virtual visit, for the date of your choice, register here.
