Questions & Answers
How long should I plan for my visit?
Campus visits take a minimum of two hours. If you want to meet with athletics, audition for performing arts, eat lunch, or sit in on a class, please plan for longer.
Where do I park?
Parking on campus is free, and there are four reserved "Future Jimmie" spots right outside of Admissions. We will send full driving and parking directions with your visit itinerary.
Who all can I meet with? What all can I do on my visit?
On Saturdays, we guarantee you'll have a chance to meet with your personal Admissions Counselor and tour campus with a Jimmie Ambassador. We will also try to schedule a time for you to meet with a faculty member in your field of interest, though we can't always guarantee their availability. The same is true for Performing Arts and auditions. Students who want to guarantee a meeting with faculty, sitting in on a class, and/or auditioning should plan to visit campus during the week.
I requested a visit. When will I get my full itinerary?
Visits are planned specially for YOU. It takes a minimum of two business days to confirm all parts of your visit. We try our best to email your itinerary out no less than 24 hours in advance.
I got my itinerary, but something I wanted to do isn't listed.
We try our best to make your time on campus the most fulfilling it can be! Sometimes, though, professors or certain coaches aren't available. If you want to sit in on a class, you'll need to visit M-F Between September-April.
What if I have to reschedule?
No problem, life happens! Just text your Admissions Counselor or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to take in a sporting or performing arts event when I'm there. Can I?
Yes! If you'd like to attend any Jimmie athletic event or UJ concert, play, or performance while you're here, simply let us know and we will provide you with free passes.
I'm coming from out of town. Any lodging recommendations?
Jamestown has many great hotels including the Fairfield Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn & Suites, Holiday Inn Express, and Gladstone Inn. Mention you're visiting UJ for possible discounts!
What if my interests change before my visit?
Did you sign up as a Business major but recently decide to study Education? Let us know and we'll try our best to update your professor visit and add or subtract any other necessary items to your itinerary!
Are masks required on campus?
At this time the University does not require masks. However, if you and your family would prefer, we will make sure everyone involved in your visit is masked. Some members of our faculty do request masks during their portion of the visit.
