Campus tours are led by university experts—our students! They'll walk you around campus sharing their stories, pointing out their favorite places, and answering all of your questions about life at Widener.

Your 1.5- to 2-hour visit will also include a brief information session with our admissions team, covering all you need to know about the admissions and financial aid process and so much more.

Tours are offered weekdays and select weekend dates. Registrations will open approximately one month in advance of the event.
