Our saying at EMU is Rain, Sleet, or Snow…Tours must go! We’ll try to showcase the campus as long as the university is open. However, there are times (especially during the winter) when the temperature may drop, and it’s no longer safe to be outside. When temperatures drop below 15 degrees, we will offer abbreviated 5-point tours during your visit. If the temperature drops below 0, we reserve the right to cancel tours for our staff’s safety. In the event of severe weather, we will communicate any updates with you on the morning of your visit.
Any visit would be great! If you’re looking for a more personalized experience, a campus tour would be best for you! If you’re curious to learn more about general EMU information or to get a first look at campus, our Open Houses and Preview Days would be recommended for you!
