Group Visits

We love showing our campus to student groups, and we can create a customized EWU experience for your group.

To coordinate a visit, just fill out the group visit form.

Scheduling your Visit

To assure your visit is tailored to your needs, you'll want to plan well in advance.

  • Schedule your overnight visits four weeks in advance.
  • Schedule your day visits at least three weeks in advance.
  • Group visits are available Monday through Friday.
  • Overnight visits are available Monday through Thursday for students in the 9th grade and above.

Groups of more than 100 students present special challenges and require much more advanced planning. In addition, exceptionally large groups have fewer options for all-group activities. We encourage you to visit with smaller groups to help assure a more personal and informative visit.

Your visit may include the following activities.

Campus Tour

Time: 60 minutes
  All ages

Student guides provide walking tours of campus. As time allows, visitors will see the majority of the Cheney campus. The tour includes the library and University Recreation Center. Since current students live in the residential halls, we limit tours of residential halls to 60 visitors or less. The ratio of visitors to guides will depend on how many guides are available at that time. 

Admissions Presentation

Time: 30 minutes
All ages

Our general presentation includes the admissions process, how to apply for college, what students should do to prepare for college, and a question and answer session with an admissions representative. 

Admissions Workshop

Time: 30 minutes
Audience: All ages

EWU offers multiple workshops on college fit, essay writing, and more. 

On-campus Lunch

Time: 45-60 minutes
  All ages

Cost: varies,  typically $7-$10 per student. We are happy to help coordinate meals through EWU Dining Services, who require a two-week notice to plan your group meal. If your group includes fewer than 60 students, we can coordinate meal cards for each student with a spending limit determined by you. For groups over 60, Dining Services can coordinate a catered meal for your group.

Student Panel

All ages

Ask questions and get unscripted answers from 3-6 current EWU students.
