Nothing beats personal experience. So we encourage you and your family to visit our campus. Each campus visit includes a Group Information Session and a campus tour led by a current student. The rest of your visit is customized to suit your personal interests. For instance, you can sit in on classes, have an interview, attend a student organization meeting, hear a concert by an a cappella group, or work out in the Athletic Complex.
