Campus Visit Programs
We believe we have a responsibility to institute proactive health and safety measures to decrease the spread and potential exposure of COVID-19. At this time, we are hosting virtual visit events, and we're hopeful we will be able to host individual visitors on campus beginning in the fall. We have not made a decision about our on-campus visit programs, such as TLU Preview and Bulldog Bound, at this time.
We are excited to offer live, interactive, 20-minute virtual visit events Monday-Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for prospective students and admitted students. We also offer virtual visit events on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. and Fridays at 2:00 p.m. for transfer students.
Our virtual visits include presentations tailored for students who just want to know more about TLU, students who’ve already been admitted to TLU, or students who are interested in transferring to TLU. Throughout the presentation, you can interact with an admissions representative through the chat feature. We are live on every session, ready to answer all of your questions!
TLU Preview: Visit Program for All High School & Transfer Students
Saturday, Oct. 10 & Saturday, Nov. 14
At this event, you'll have the opportunity to virtually:
- Meet TLU’s President, Dr. Debbie Cottrell, and learn why she loves TLU

After the event livestream, you will be invited to view a special behind the scenes look at new digital content developed just for prospective students.
Bulldog Bound: Visit Program for Admitted Students
Bulldog Bound is a special admissions visit program for admitted students in the spring. We offer two Bulldog Bound programs, typically in February and April.
A Virtual Visit Event Just For Transfer Students
Prospective transfer students are invited to join us for an exclusive virtual event for students interested in transferring to TLU. No matter if you are just starting the search process, have submitted an application, or have been admitted to TLU, the transfer process is unique, and we want to give you the opportunity to hear from the transfer experts, our transfer students! During this session, TLU students will share their experience as a transfer student and also answer your unique questions.
Dates: June 24 and July 28, 2020
An Event for Students Who Are Enrolling in the Fall
In July, we host Bulldog Basics for students who have been accepted and have paid their enrollment deposit. At Bulldog Basics, we have staff from Admissions, the Registrar's office, Student Financial Services, and Student Accounts review everything students need to know and do before move-in day.
We also introduce the summer Freshman Experience (FREX) project. Students and their families enjoy lunch on campus and may attend optional afternoon sessions for various academic programs as well as information on academic advising, athletics, dining services, and campus safety. Bulldog Basics is optional and there are two sessions to choose from.
Dates: July 10 & 24 (Virtual)
