Department of Theater, Cinema and Dance Tours

The department of Theatre, Cinema and Dance offers tours of our facilities for prospective students and their parents on a reservation basis. Reservations are required, as space and dates can be limited.   We ask that you contact our department to arrange this tour separate from the Campus Tour.

These tours also give you an opportunity to meet and ask questions with the faculty of your interest.   Due to performances, rehearsals, and classes – guests on tours may not be able to go into some rooms.  Please schedule a tour 2-3 weeks in advance.

Missouri Western State University Student Campus Tours

Part of selecting a university is knowing what the campus looks like – its classrooms, lecture halls, recreational facilities, and residence halls. Prospective undergraduate students and their parents are encouraged to take personalized Campus Tour, which lasts approximately one hour and is led by a Missouri Western student guide. It’s a walking tour, so we suggest you wear comfortable shoes. They also will have an option of eating in the dining hall which we strongly encourage to do.

Reservations are required for these campus tours, as space is limited. Please be aware that tours tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend that you make your tour reservation at least 2-3 weeks in advance. To request a reservation, please visit
