Visit Winona

There’s just something special to being on the Winona campus—a feeling of finding home, or so our students say.

Whether it’s your first look or you want to check out campus again, come visit Winona.

WSU offers in-person visits on campus year-round when you can learn about the admissions process and tour academic buildings and residence halls.

Most of our tour guides are current students, so you’ll get their personal experiences about life at WSU.
