The Newhouse Visitors Center is “home base” for prospective undergraduate students who want to learn more about their future at the Newhouse School. We are hosting both virtual and on campus visits this summer!
Welcome to the Newhouse School!
We have many ways for you to get a sense of what it will be like to be a Newhouse student, from spotlight classes to prospective student information sessions. Review the options on this page, and sign up for anything that interests you! We look forward to meeting you!
Visit on campus or virtually—you choose!
We’re excited to welcome prospective and admitted families to campus this summer. We’re hosting on campus, in person Newhouse information sessions and tours every weekday this summer.
Register for your in-person, main campus tour
School/college visits at Syracuse University are add-ons to your main campus visit.
You will get the opportunity to choose your Newhouse tour once you’ve registered for a main campus tour.
Remember that the Newhouse information sessions are at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., followed by a tour of Newhouse, so schedule your main campus tour outside of those times.
For your planning purposes, Newhouse information sessions plus the tour take about 90 minutes.
Join Wes Whiteside, associate director of recruitment and diversity and the Newhouse Student Ambassadors, for a live virtual tour of the Newhouse School complex. The virtual tour will provide our prospective students and their families a glimpse into student life in all three of our buildings. With over 250,000 square feet of space, we won’t be able to show you everything, but we’ll certainly give you the highlights. The tour features visits to classrooms, computer labs, collaboration spaces, community areas, and our state-of-the-art studios.
Come join the Newhouse Student Ambassadors on Fridays for a student-to-student chat. No grown-ups allowed! Feel free to ask our Ambassadors any questions about their experiences at Newhouse and Syracuse. Our Ambassadors represent a diverse student population and currently live on or around campus, know the ins and outs of the dining halls, and most are members of student groups and media organizations. Some have traveled abroad or completed one of our domestic launch programs, and all explored the City of Syracuse and surrounding area. They are here to answer your questions honestly and authentically from their perspective. Join us every Friday at 3:30 pm EST.
Important message regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We would like nothing more than to welcome you to campus or travel to your area. However, following New York State recommendations related to large gatherings and in an abundance of care for your family and ours, we have made the decision to suspend all campus visits, student-led tours and admissions programming until further notice.
While we cannot welcome you to campus to meet our outstanding faculty and students, and see firsthand what happens in our state-of-the-art facility, we can do our best to bring Newhouse to you!
