Program events may be altered at the discretion of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to ensure the safety of our campus visitors and tour guides. 

The campus walking tour will be replaced with a virtual tour presentation and a student panel discussion under the following conditions: 

  • thunder/lightning
  • extreme cold
  • tornado watch/warning
  • other severe or dangerous weather conditions

This alternate presentation will still provide valuable highlights of campus and insights from student Campus Ambassadors. 

Please note, visits will not be altered by non-threatening conditions and occasionally take place in rain and uncomfortable temperatures. Please dress appropriately and bring an umbrella if necessary.

Campus closures

In the rare instance when CMU experiences a weather-related campus closure, all admissions programs and tours will be canceled. Campus closure announcements can be found at
