Visit ETBU

Preview events are a unique way to discover what East Texas Baptist University has to offer and to experience campus life firsthand. We encourage you to come to one, two or a variety of all three! You'll have the opportunity to eat in the Bennett Student Commons , meet your admissions counselor, tour the ETBU campus, experience worship in chapel, meet other prospective students and learn about the culture of our university. 

Our admissions staff, along with faculty and other volunteers, will guide the day for you and your family. Learn more about the preview events below and register for the event that you think best fits you! 

Recommended Attire: Dress casually and wear comfortable walking shoes. You will be outdoors for your campus tour and many transitions between activities; be aware of the weather forecast.

Individual Campus Visit

Our individual campus tour begins with an information session where you will learn about our campus life, academic programs, athletics, scholarships, and other general information. After this, morning tours on Monday and Wednesday will get to attend a chapel event where you can experience worship and student life here on The Hill. Both choices in tour times will offer a full campus tour that will show off our amazing facilities, dorms, and scenery! You will also get a chance to meet your admissions counselor and ask questions to get more details about our University!
