Plan Your Visit to Campus 

Before deciding on a college, you want to make sure it's a good fit. Visiting campus is the best way to find that out. We can tell you how beautiful the brick buildings are or describe the family environment of YU, but that's nothing compared to experiencing it for yourself. Just one word of caution, if you do come for a visit -- there's a good chance you'll like it here!
