Welcome to our website
and thank you for your interest in visiting Northwest Vista College (NVC)! One
of the best ways to learn more about us is to visit our phenomenal campus, so
please take advantage of one of our campus tour opportunities. We look forward
to meeting you soon!
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN
Our campus tours are
approximately forty-five minutes to an hour in length and consist of a
walk-through of our beautiful campus and various academic buildings, starting
at the Cypress Campus Center (CCC). Tours are led by Admissions/Welcome Center staff
members (Professional or student staff) or Wildcat Tour Tracker volunteers
(current NVC students). NVC tour guides will provide you with a candid view of
campus, covering our history and student life, as well as program offerings and
student services. Please note that formal presentations are not a part of these
tours. Should you have specific questions about services or programs after your
tour, your tour guide will happily connect you with the appropriate staff
member who can assist you.
HOW TO ENJOY A CAMPUS
INDIVIDUAL TOURS (1-2 accompanying guests permitted)
Individual tours are currently offered on Monday afternoons at 2 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 9 a.m. by appointment only and
are accompanied with an Admissions Information Session to assist students with
learning more about NVC or receiving help through the enrollment process. All tours will begin in Room 126
in the Cypress Campus Center (CCC) (the office just past the cafeteria
when you enter the building form the parking lot).
Please request your campus tour and Admissions information session here:
Campus Tour and Information Session Request
Once your request is received, your visit
will be reviewed and scheduled by our staff within two business days. Tours are
scheduled based on availability and on a first-come-first-serve basis so schedule
early! Once your tour has been scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email
of your date and time. Please do not plan for a tour if you have not
established contact with a staff member and received this confirmation as we
want to be intentional in planning your visit and provide the best experience possible for you.
GROUP TOURS (For groups of 10+ students)
Group tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and should be requested as soon as possible to secure availability. Once you have requested a tour, a Vista Central staff member will contact you to arrange your tour and provide confirmation details. Please do not plan for a tour if you have not received confirmation.
The maximum capacity for group tours is 60 students, with one chaperone per ten students. However, larger groups can be accommodated with advance notice as staffing allows. Tours are subject to change based on availability staff.
Groups tours are approximately 45 minutes to one hour in length. Students are advised to wear comfortable shoes and dress according to the weather. Tours may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather.
