Campus Visits: Explore what makes SVSU unique!

Each year the Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) School/University Partnership Office (SUPO) is pleased to welcome students from the charter schools it authorizes to SVSU's main campus. SVSU SUPO tours usually last longer than typical campus tours because they take a deep exploration into what is happening at the university. We strongly believe that students that step foot on campus can better envision themselves attending college.

Visiting students will get the chance to explore many of the key points around campus, including:

  • Gilbertson Hall (Public School Academy Office)
  • Arbury Arts (Marshall Fredericks Museum)
  • Wickes Hall (Financial/Career Services)
  • Cardinal Cafe (Food Variety)
  • Ryder Center (Fieldhouse, Gym, Recreational Area)
  • Brown (Engineering)
  • The Marketplace (Lunch)
  • Curtiss Hall (Conference Room)
