Visit Campus

When you step on SFA's beautiful campus nestled amongst the pineywoods, you’ll feel the true meaning of Lumberjack spirit. It's more than the breathtaking beauty of the pine trees across campus. It’s the Lumberjack experience and the spirit that generates throughout campus. Our Jack Walkers will show you a glimpse of what life as a Lumberjack is like and why they chose to call SFA their home.

You can expect your tour to take about one hour to an hour and a half. We offer weekday and weekend on-campus tours*, virtual tours, and we even have special tours for large groups. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you explore SFA's beautiful campus guided by our Jack Walkers.

*Weekday and weekend tours are not available during holidays (including Good Friday), exams, commencement activities or special events, such as Homecoming and Battle of the Piney Woods.
