    New virtual tour provides up-close look at campus

    We’ve just made it easy for prospective students and their families to tour the MSU Moorhead campus—right from the comfort of home. Our new virtual walking tour brings our beautiful campus right to your computer or mobile device.

    The tour begins on the picturesque campus mall, and is led by a student tour guide who provides some history, points out campus landmarks and describes many of our academic programs and emphases of study. You’ll walk from one end of campus to the other, right onscreen, visiting academic buildings, lecture halls, athletic facilities, residence halls, dining areas and more. Go inside and explore each location in greater detail by viewing photo galleries and 360-degree panoramic photos in which you control the image and viewing angles. You can even watch YouTube videos to meet real students and learn more about some of our programs and faculty.

    The virtual tour plays an important role in the college-search process. “We know it’s impossible for prospective students and their families to travel to every campus they would like to visit,” says Sarah Nissen, MSU Moorhead’s interim director of admissions. “Our virtual tour brings the campus to them. They can see what it’s like to be a student at MSU Moorhead and, from there, determine if they’d like to visit us in person.”

    Of course, nothing—not even a virtual tour—beats an in-person campus tour. At the end of the virtual tour you’ll have an opportunity to sign up to experience our campus in person. We conduct campus tours Monday through Friday, at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., when classes are in session. You can meet with an academic counselor and visit our academic buildings, classrooms, residence halls and athletic facilities.

    We can even customize your in-person tour by scheduling appointments with faculty members from your major and staff from the Honors, Financial Aid, Athletics, Disability Services or Diversity and Inclusion offices.
