Campus Tours

Lumberjack mascot Blake Taylor

Come tour SFA with Blake "The Lumberjack" Taylor, campus tour guide and one of the top NCAA mascots in the country, or one of his fellow Jack Walker tour guides! Contact us to schedule a tour by emailing admissions@sfasu.edu or call (936) 468-2504.

Anyone interested in attending SFA is strongly encouraged to visit our beautiful campus! Campus tours, guided by SFA students, depart each weekday (10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m.) from the Office of Admissions in the Thomas J. Rusk Building.

The university is closed on certain holidays, so check our office closings before you plan your trip. Call (936) 468-2504 to make an appointment for a tour. If you are unable to visit our campus during the week, we do offer our "open house" program called Showcase Saturday once each semester. We offer some Saturday tours by appointment only.

During your tour, you will see academic facilities, residence halls, and the library. Additionally, the student tour guide will point out our recreational facilities, the multipurpose Baker Pattillo Student Center and some historic landmarks for which Nacogdoches is known.

Perhaps most importantly, a weekday tour gives you an opportunity to see our campus in action, and our tour guide can give you a first hand view of what it's like to be a student at SFA. Additional opportunities you will have when visiting our campus include:
