Our South Guides are excited to show you around our campus!

USA campus tours primarily target high school students and includes a peek at our recreation center and freshman-only residence halls. Not in high school…no worries? We offer tour times that are specific to prospective transfer, second bachelor’s, and adult freshman students. You can register for one of our on-campus weekday or Saturday tours here

If you are interested in bringing an official group (10+ students, who are part of a specific institution or organization) to campus, please email us at

Prospective graduate students can also request a visit. These requests should only be completed by students who have completed a college degree. All other students should register for an undergraduate campus tour.

▼   Virtual Meetings

We want to answer your questions and tell you all about South. We can’t wait for you to be here. During this meeting, you will have the opportunity to meet with one of our Admissions Officers and learn more about our great university.
