    The Welcome Center

    The Welcome Center

    Our Welcome Center building is located at 72 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of 13th Street, and is currently open to external visitors.  

    All visitors must be fully vaccinated and boosted and present proof of vaccination to the Welcome Center staff. Visitors must wear a mask in all university buildings and indoor spaces for the duration of their visit.

      Visitors who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to stay in the building.

      For the spring semester, our in-person offerings are limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating up to seven students with one guest each. Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with admission staff. Visitors without appointments may interact with Welcome Center staff within the Welcome Center lobby. 

      Those interested in learning more about our academic programs, admission requirements, or campus life are invited to connect online with a Welcome Center student assistant through our Welcome Center Virtual Desk. Virtual desk hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary.
