The Best Ways To Visit ATU

We offer several ways for you to experience Arkansas Tech University while you are making your decision about what college to attend. You have the option to visit us in person or virtually - take a look below to find the options that work best for you.

1. Take a Personal Tour

Do you want a more individual approach to seeing our campus? You may either take a standard tour or a private tour. If you schedule a standard tour, you may bring up to three guests. You and your guests will join a tour group (typically 20 people). If you schedule a private tour, you may bring up to seven guests.

You will take a walking tour of campus and learn more about the university from one of our Golden Guides. Private golf cart tours can be provided if your party has an accessibility need or a request is made in advance.

What You'll See

On our campus tour, you will learn about academic programs, campus resources, student organizations and other ways to be involved from an ATU Golden Guide, who is also a current ATU student. In addition, you'll go inside the M Street Residence Hall and see a furnished room.
