FVSU Open House

What is an Open House?

One of the best ways to learn about Fort Valley State University is to visit our campus during an Open House, which is basically a day of "Getting to Know FVSU." On these special days, prospective students have the opportunity to tour the campus and talk with faculty, staff, students, and admissions counselors.

To make an appointment, contact the Office of Recruitment and Admissions: 1-877-GO2-FVSU or
