Wooster is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following local, state, and national health organization guidance. We have implemented visitor practices in line with this guidance. We encourage you to view our Campus Guide. All visit activities are subject to change. We will do our best to provide advanced notice of any changes to your visit experience. 

Inclusivity Statement
At Wooster, creating a diverse, equitable, welcoming and inclusive campus community is a top priority. Our students, faculty, staff, and visitors of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, faiths, sexual orientations, gender identities, and socioeconomic circumstances are welcome. We respect and value the commonalities and differences among us. By celebrating the uniqueness of each individual and recognizing it takes all people to make a college community, we pledge to stand united against hate by creating and contributing to safe campus environments in our community.

How do I prepare for a safe and enjoyable visit to Wooster?

We look forward to welcoming you to campus.  Be sure to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Please note that campus is currently mask-optional, with faculty and staff possibly requiring masks in classrooms and offices. We recommend bringing a mask for your visit.

When should I arrive to the Office of Admissions for my visit?

Please arrive for your visit as close as you can to your scheduled time.  We welcome guests to check-in at our front desk in the admissions lobby. You also have the option to check-in by phone (330-263-2322) if you prefer to have your tour guide meet you at your car. Lobby restrooms and refreshments are available for all guests.

Can I schedule a campus tour? Will multiple families tour together?

All high school students and their family members can enjoy a student-led campus tour.  Our campus tours are individualized whenever possible. If you attend a larger visit program, you will be grouped with other families.

How many guests will I be able to bring with me?

We do not have a guest limit.

Can I schedule a conversation with an admissions staff representative?

All high school students may request an on-campus interview/conversation with a member of our admissions staff.  We believe current high school seniors find these conversations most beneficial.

I’ve requested to talk with a coach. Where will we meet?

If the coach or program representative is available during the day of your visit, we will indicate the time and location of the meeting upon check-in.

Will there be dining options on-campus? In the surrounding community?

Students and their guests may request to dine on campus during most individual visits and selected visit programs. During campus mask mandates, please plan to stay masked until seated and sit as a unit. We highly recommend families explore our local Wooster restaurants.   Some of our favorite downtown spots include Broken Rocks, Basil, Spoon, Local Roots (local co-op) and Salsaroja Bar & Grill.

Am I able to meet with a professor or attend a class?

Students can request to meet with a professor and/or attend an in-person class as available. Most individual visit dates and selected weekday visit programs offer these activities.

*Students interested in attending a class, meeting with a professor, or dining on campus, please see our visit form to select options. Masks may be required in select spaces.

May I stay overnight on campus? Are airport shuttles available for students traveling alone?

At this time, we are unable to accommodate overnight visitors on campus. Please feel free to contact Admissions after October 17, as our policy may be updated depending on current campus guidelines.

*Students interested in attending a class, meeting with a professor, or dining on campus, please see our visit form to select options. Masks may be required in select spaces.

Do you accommodate walk-in visitors?

We cannot guarantee a tour or interview if you have not registered in advance, but feel free to stop in the Admissions Office (847 College Ave.) during open hours.

You are welcome to enjoy a self-guided tour should you find yourself traveling near Wooster. Campus maps are available next to the entrance of the Admissions Office.

What visit opportunities do we offer for college counselors?

We welcome college counselors to visit Wooster and connect with admissions staff and students.  Please contact April Gamble, Coordinator of Counselor Relations, to plan your visit experience (330-263-2201).
