Plan a visit to campus! There is nothing like visiting our beautiful campus to get a feel for what it will be like to be a Gopher. You can schedule a tour through the Office of Admissions. Admissions offers specialized tours designed for students interested in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA). You can choose to see dates when CLA tours are available.

Apply to the College of Liberal Arts through University of Minnesota's Office of Admissions.
