What is a Group Visit?
We look forward to welcoming your group to the Klamath Falls campus! A campus visit is an excellent way to introduce your students to the college experience as they set goals for their academic career. Group visits are intended for grades 7-12 or community college groups - we do not schedule visits for K-6.
We can customize the visit to meet the needs of your group and may include:
- Campus tour led by a Tech Ambassador (1 hour and 30 minutes)
- Admissions presentation or Q&A (30 minutes)
- Financial Aid Presentation (30 minutes)
- Faculty meetings (variable)
To Request a Group Visit at the Klamath Falls Campus:
Your visit is not confirmed until you hear back from Oregon Tech Admissions. You will receive a follow-up email where you will be able to confirm arrival and departure times, as well as any additional presentations or activities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our Tech Ambassadors are current students who love showing the campus to visitors and who especially enjoy relating their college experience at Oregon Tech. Challenge your students to get the most out of the experience by being engaged during the visit.
Encourage your group to actively involve themselves by:
- Interacting with the Tech Ambassadors during the tour
- Preparing questions to ask during the presentations
- Connecting with presenters by making eye contact and looking interested
By preparing your students, you will help Oregon Tech to provide a visit that inspires them with eagerness and enthusiasm for their college goals.
Please plan to arrive on campus at least 30 minutes before your scheduled start time. This will allow your group ample time to park, find the College Union, as well as give your students time to visit the restrooms before beginning their visit. Should it appear that your group would not arrive on campus at the expected time, please notify the Admissions Office immediately by calling 541.885.1150.
Once your agenda is finalized, a confirmation email will be sent to you. Please print this confirmation and bring it with you on your visit so you will know where to park and when to arrive. It also has our contact information so that you can contact us if needed.
- Personal vehicles: Parking permits are required for personal vehicles. You can get one, free, in the Information Center (Campus Map #13) before entering the campus. After you obtain your permit, please park in the Snell Hall Parking Lot (Campus Map Section C).
- School buses: Parking permits are not required for buses. Please park along the sidewalks of the Snell Hall Parking Lot (Campus Map Section C)
A recommended ratio is:
- High School = 1 adult : 10 students
- Elementary & Middle School = 1 adult : 7 students
Chaperones should stay with their assigned group throughout the campus visit. Reminding your students of the importance of being quiet in the academic buildings will help them to respect the learning environment of our current students
General tours related to Oregon Tech's health programs will not include the viewing of whole cadavers. However, an Oregon Tech instructor may choose to incorporate the viewing of human organs (such as a brain) if the instructor feels this is appropriate.
Instructors may, at their discretion, choose to incorporate whole cadaver viewing as part of the experience for groups visiting campus for a specific course (e.g. Anatomy & Physiology).
In all cases, visits to Oregon Tech's cadaver lab will be preceded by a briefing about ethics and etiquette.
