Class visits are not available during the last week of the fall and spring semesters.

Contact the Professor

We recommend emailing the professor in advance to confirm location and availability.

If you'd like to speak with a faculty member in more depth, you can chat after class or arrange a meeting.

Overnight Visits

Am I Eligible?

Overnights are available in the fall for high school seniors and transfer students only, and for admitted students in the spring. 

When Can I Come?

Overnight visits are available Monday through Thursday evenings, when the college is in session, from late September to mid November, and in late March and April (for admitted students only). Because we think it's important for you to visit classes, the admission staff schedules overnight stays only during the week.

What Should I Expect?

Your student host or her friends will keep you company during your campus stay, have dinner and breakfast with you and take you to classes.

Arrange for a Stay

To arrange a hosted overnight stay, please access our Overnight Visits Calendar (not available at this time). You must complete the required Waiver and Permission form when you come to campus. Please be sure to read it carefully.
