You may have heard that visiting campus is the best way to know if it is the right fit for you — and we agree! But we also understand that not everyone is looking for the same thing on their visit. That is why we have designed a variety of visit days with you in mind.
Special Visit Days
Our special visits offer an in-depth view of campus and additional interaction with faculty and current students. Explore the options available to you below, and especially keep an eye out for the sample agendas we’ve provided for many of the visits, which will give you a more detailed look at what is included in each day.
Admitted Student Day

Admitted Student Visit Day, an optional visit exclusively reserved for admitted high school seniors, offers an in-depth look at campus, residence hall open houses, and an opportunity to check off your next steps to becoming a Blugold.

Offered in the fall and spring
