Visit Us and Experience the First of Many Amazing Opportunities

Make the most of your campus visit, virtually or in person. Whether you see the bluffs up close as you walk around campus, or meet with an admissions counselor on Zoom who makes you feel like you’re already part of the Saint Mary’s family — experiencing the Winona campus will change everything. At Saint Mary’s, a transformational experience is what it's all about.

Keeping You Safe

Following our COVID-19 campus safety protocols, all in-person campus visits must be scheduled in advance. All in-person visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing while on campus. Additionally, all in-person campus visits are limited to one prospective student and two guests.

It Pays to Visit!

Are you a high school senior or a transfer student? Just for making an official campus visit, you’re eligible for a $1,000 scholarship, per year, for a total of $4,000 — on top of your other awards! Talk to an admission counselor about the Cardinal Visit Scholarship for complete details.

In-Person Visit

We can’t wait to show you and your family the Winona campus! You’ll experience a campus tour and meet with an admission counselor. Right away, you’ll feel the spirit of Saint Mary’s and our welcoming community. It’s as vibrant as ever. All in-person visits must be scheduled in advance. Register today for an in-person visit.
