Accepted Student Days are filled with activities designed to give you a true sense of Purchase College. You will have a chance to participate in lively discussions with our faculty and students, discover unique majors, clubs, and opportunities for involvement, explore the campus with our students on a guided tours and find out why Purchase faculty and staff are serving students pancakes at midnight!



Test Drive Days offer students an opportunity to sit in on a Purchase College class and hear from our engaging and knowledgeable faculty in various disciplines who have opened their classrooms to accepted students. Below is a list of courses currently open to visiting students. Please understand that due to schedule constraints, there may not be a course available in your field of interest.

Upcoming Campus Events


Kuba Textiles: Geometry in Form, Space, and Time

When: March 1 – June 14, 2015 - Monday – Friday 10am-5pm
Where: Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery
School of the Arts | School of Art+Design

In the present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Kuba peoples are renowned for their cut-pile raffia cloths. When sewn together and layered, they form extraordinary skirts and overskirts that wrap around the body multiple times. Characterized by resplendent surface elaboration, these garments are detailed and complex like other Kuba decorative arts, a feature found in no other African kingdom. Remarkable not only for their beauty but also for their large scale — some of these textiles reach nearly thirty feet in length — they are worn on special occasions by men and women, and display the status of the wearer.

Kuba Textiles: Geometry in Form, Space, and Time is the first exhibition to bring together works from two of the earliest collections of Kuba textiles: the Musée Royal de l’Afrique Centrale, Tervuren, Belgium, founded by Leopold II in 1897, and the Sheppard Collection at Hampton University in Virginia, gathered between 1890 and 1910 by the American Presbyterian Congo missionary, William Henry Sheppard, the first Westerner to be received by a Kuba king in 1892. Additional important loans to the exhibition come from the Brooklyn Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and three private collections.
