Campus Tours

Weekday Tours

Anyone interested in attending SFA is strongly encouraged to visit our beautiful campus! Campus tours, guided by SFA students known as "Jack Walkers" (J-Walkers), 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 J-Walkers 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 J-Walkers 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:

Weekend Tours

Saturday Tours

Weekday tours provide the best opportunity for visitors to become acquainted with our campus. Representatives from academic departments, financial aid and Residence Life Department are available Monday through Friday to meet and answer questions. Visitors are encouraged to come to campus during the week to experience all that SFA has to offer. However, we recognize that it is not always possible. During the fall and spring semester select Saturday tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and noon.

In addition to touring campus, appointments also can be made to meet with the staff in the office of admissions for counseling sessions between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Appointments are required for both tours and counseling.


Saturday tours are unavailable during the holidays observed throughout the 2014-2015 school year:

* Saturday Tours will resume for the Fall Semester September 6, 2014.



The Office of Admissions is also closed for Saturday tours on the following dates:


These dates are tentative. Please call or e-mail to verify our opening on the day you intend to visit.
