Welcome to our website
and thank you for your interest in visiting Northwest Vista College (NVC)! One
of the best ways to learn more about us is to visit our phenomenal campus, so
please take advantage of one of our campus tour opportunities. We look forward
to meeting you soon!
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN
Our campus tours are
approximately forty-five minutes to an hour in length and consist of a
walk-through of our beautiful campus and various academic buildings, starting
at the Cypress Campus Center (CCC). Tours are led by Admissions/Welcome Center staff
members (Professional or student staff) or Wildcat Tour Tracker volunteers
(current NVC students). NVC tour guides will provide you with a candid view of
campus, covering our history and student life, as well as program offerings and
student services. Please note that formal presentations are not a part of these
tours. Should you have specific questions about services or programs after your
tour, your tour guide will happily connect you with the appropriate staff
member who can assist you.
