Experience the best of SFA

Showcase Saturday isn’t your typical college visit. Sure, you’ll get to see the SFA campus and take a tour of our residence halls. But depending on the time of year you attend Showcase Saturday, you’ll get to do much more than that. Check out SFA’s performing arts scene or cheer on the Lumberjacks or Ladyjacks at one of our many sporting events, from football games in the fall to basketball in the spring.
