There are all kinds of options for you to visit – from General Visit Days to hands-on Academic Action Days that focus on specific majors, to Scholarship Days where invited admitted-students compete for awards. Virtual visits and personalized individual visits/tours are also an option; we’ll arrange one to fit your schedule.
