Visit Mines

*** In an effort to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and the risk to our campus community and visitors, we have decided to suspend all on-campus visit programs through April 18, 2020, possibly longer. We will reevaluate later this month to determine if further suspensions are needed or we can resume our daily on-campus visits. We send our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience these suspensions have caused. ***
