If you are considering becoming an Eagle, the best way to make your decision is to take a trip to Embry-Riddle’s residential campus in Prescott, Arizona. Campus tours are available year-round, Monday through Friday, and some select Saturdays. And for admitted students, Preview Day in the spring is an opportunity to experience campus life first hand.
All tours start out with a walking tour through campus that showcases the hands-on labs, the academic buildings, the residence halls, the athletic facilities and the various social gathering areas.
“In order to optimize your time on the Prescott Campus, take advantage of all we have to offer. It would be a good idea to spend more than one day, if you can,” said Admissions and Recruitment Assistant Stacy Ramirez. “If that’s not a possibility, you can get a good idea of life as an Embry-Riddle student by sitting in on a class, meeting a professor, or even taking in a sporting event in the afternoon or evening.”
Take time to connect
Experience life as a student in Prescott during your tour and work with the admissions and campus tour staff to attend classes or meet with professors and students while visiting. You can also learn more about student activities, Greek life and clubs, residential halls and the ROTC program during your visit. “Take any opportunity you can to have a well-rounded experience,” said Embry-Riddle senior Kristen Chadwell. “There are so many great clubs and activities on campus that can help prepare you for life after college.”
Take a flight
Not only can you tour in Prescott but you can also take a flight with an instructor in an Embry-Riddle aircraft. Soar 5,000 feet above Northern Arizona with a flight instructor. The College of Aviation also features state-of-the-art flight simulators used to train student pilots.
Visit program highlights
Visit the Aerospace Experimentation and Fabrication Building, the CSI Center featuring the Hacker Lab and the Glen Doherty Center for Security and Intelligence studies.

Get your questions answered
Take time to get any questions answered about the admissions process, program requirements, financial aid and scholarships. While visiting, you will have the opportunity to meet with enrollment counselors to get detailed information about their academic opportunities. “Visiting campus is my No. 1 piece of advice that I give to prospective students. This is your chance to learn more about Embry-Riddle, see the campus for yourself, get a sense of what life is like on campus, and to ultimately determine if it’s the right place for you.,” said Admissions and Recruitment Director Sara Bofferding. “All the enrollment counselors are here to make sure you get your questions answered and to guide you along the path to becoming an Embry-Riddle student.”
