Coronavirus Updates

We are limiting the number of individual appointments to limit the number of visitors on campus at a particular time. All visitors will be screened upon arrival and will be required to wear a face covering while on campus. We can provide face coverings for those who request them.

While we encourage you to schedule appointment in advance, we will do our best to accommodate unscheduled visits. If you need to register for a last minute tour of campus please call us at 800-388-2276 or 540-375-2270. We will try our best to accommodate you.

If you do not feel comfortable traveling to campus, we will be continuing our virtual visit opportunities throughout the year. We can also provide a self-guided walking tour upon request.
