Weekend Visit Days are for students who find it difficult to make it to campus during the week. You will have the opportunity to tour campus and get a broad overview of Northwest. During the tour you will hear from a current student and meet other families visiting in a group setting.

The 90 minute walking group tour is led by a Northwest student ambassador who will share his or her individual experiences about Northwest and some pointers for selecting a university. The average campus tour is a 2 mile walk. If you are unable to walk for this distance please let us know when scheduling the tour and special arrangements can be made.

COVID-19 Update

Northwest continues to closely monitor conditions on our campuses and in surrounding communities while aligning with the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College Health Association, and state and local health agencies.

Due to the volatility of the Delta variant and low vaccination rates in the region, Northwest has temporarily reinstated its face-covering requirement for all students, employees and visitors indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings may be removed only in indoor areas where 6 feet of social distance can be maintained, where a physical barrier is in place and in Campus Dining areas.
