High school students

We recommend personal visits for high school seniors because we can plan a visit that's customized according to your academic, career, athletic, music, and other interests. With requests made in advance, we can arrange for you to meet with admission counselors, academic advisors, faculty, and athletic coaches, for example. You'll have time to discuss programs, ask questions, and get more insight about campus and student life.

High school students and their families are invited to participate in student-led group tours that depart daily from the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Please let us know when to expect you by completing a campus visit request.
