Come Visit BGU

Campus Visit attendees receive a $200 Discount towards their first year at BGU!

A campus visit consists of:

  • Sitting in on classes
  • Lunch with a student host
  • A campus tour
  • Meeting with an Admissions Counselor
  • A tour of a dorm on campus

60% of our students visit our campus before enrolling!

If you would like to stay overnight, we can check the availability of our guest rooms for the night of the visit through our Services Department for a modest rate.

We encourage you to bring along family members, friends or a mentor. A campus tour guide will call you to confirm a campus visit once you have submitted a campus visit appointment.
