Visit Tips

Planning

  • Visits can be planned year round, with the exception of a few national holidays.
  • Interviews and tours are available Monday-Friday all year.
  • Overnights are offered for seniors Sunday through Thursday nights during the academic year and are limited to one night. During April, overnights are only available for admitted students.
  • Only tours and interviews will be available during the last week of April.
  • Class visits are available for prospective students during the academic year.  See the Academic Calendar.
  • Special appointments are available during the academic year in academic and other areas of interest. During the last week of March and throughout the month of April, special appointments are available only for seniors.
  • When classes are not in session, we can offer a tour and an interview.  We cannot guarantee a special appointment during breaks, but will be glad to contact the appropriate person or department to see if one can be scheduled.
  • It's fine to wait until after you've been admitted to visit.
  • Parents should see the accommodation information;  we are unable to host them in the residence halls.
