Visit Campus

Individual Visits

The single best way to determine if William Jewell College is right for you is to schedule a campus visit!

Campus Visit Times:

During your individual you will be able to see firsthand what life is like at Jewell. You will have an opportunity to tour campus with a current Jewell student and meet with an admission counselor to talk about the application process and financial aid opportunities. By request, you can also observe a class and/or meet with a faculty member. Seniors typically find the most value in meeting with faculty and/or observing a class. (Faculty appointments and classes are available based on the professors’ schedules and with a week’s notice, Monday-Friday only). 

  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:40 a.m. and 12:20 p.m.
  • Tuesday and Thursday at 9:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. (classes only available during the morning visit)
  • Saturdays at 9:45 a.m. on January 30, February 6, February 20, and February 27.

In order to arrange a visit that is truly tailored  to you, please provide seven days’ notice of your arrival to campus.
