Please make a reservation at least 10 days before your visit. Campus tours are scheduled by the Campus Visit Coordinator based on arrival time at 10:10 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. during weekdays.
Since classes are an essential part of the college experience, prospective students planning to spend the night in a dorm should schedule their visit to allow them to attend classes and chapel. As the majority of our college students are involved in local church ministry on the weekends, our dorms are closed to prospective students on Saturday and Sunday nights. Prospective students must arrive before 1:00 p.m. on Friday or schedule a visit for another day.
Go to this page to read all the details of our airport and bus shuttle services.
Prospective students 9th grade and above may stay in the residence halls. Those who spend the night will be offered three free meals while they are on campus! You’ll need bedding, towels, and toiletries. Several dates have been blocked out for dorm guests (see below). Dorm stays are limited to two nights. Go to this page for a list of area hotels.
Plan to enjoy Maranatha’s Dining Complex that daily serves an all-you-can eat smorgasbord of hot entrees, salad bar, dessert and ice cream bar, breakfast bar, pizza and pasta bar, sandwich buffet line, and beverages. Purchase tickets in the Welcome Center or dining complex, but child tickets (3-9 years) are available only in the dining complex. The Dining Complex is open 6:45 a.m.—6:30 p.m., except during chapel (9-10 a.m.).

- Men: Slacks and collared shirts for classes and chapel; casual slacks or jeans, collared shirts, sweaters, or sweatshirts after 4th hour.
