Academic Preview Days

Our programs are distinct—just like you.

Check them out for yourself and connect with faculty, students, and alumni. Spend the day exploring our innovative facilities and our hands-on approach to education. Participants will also take part in a campus tour, enjoy lunch in the dining hall, and have the opportunity to meet with admission and financial aid counselors. We think you’ll like what you see, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Discover why our students call this place home.
