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. 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.

*Some dates and times may become blocked due to campus events or booking and are subject to change.

Please Call (936) 468-2504 to make an appointment for a tour.

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 begin September 12, 2015

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 2015-2016 school year and the dates below:

Large Group Tours

Stephen F. Austin State University welcomes groups of guests from school districts, community based programs, or educational programs that would like to bring a group of prospective students to tour the campus. A visit may include a presentation by an Admissions representative, which encompasses aspects of academic programs, financial aid, scholarship, on campus living, and extra-curricular activities that complete the full college experience here at SFA.

The Office of Admissions asks that you register your group at least 3 weeks in advance because all tours and presentations are scheduled based on staff availability. Groups are limited in size to 100 students and there must be at least 1 adult chaperone for every 20 students visiting. We are able to offer tours most weekdays at 11 a.m. Appointments are required for large group tours.

Large group tours are unavailable on select dates throughout the year:

Please call or email for availability - dates are subject to change or book.
