ETSU welcomes visitors all year. Weekdays are the ideal time to visit because classes are in session. Campus tours are given during Fall and Spring semesters (September through April) at 9 am and 1 pm Monday through Friday. Summer tour schedule includes one tour daily at 1 pm (May through July). Student Admissions Ambassadors serve as tour guides. *A limited number of Saturday visit days are offered during Fall and Spring semesters. In addition, the Fall and Spring Open Houses provide an ideal visit opportunity.
