Transfer students are also encouraged to attend our Transfer Tuesdays, which include one-on-one appointments. Students interested in Acting, Dance, Film, Music, and the Visual Arts are encouraged to attend one of our Visual & Performing Arts visits (select Wednesdays during the academic year).

Summer Tours

We offer a variety of visits during the summer, including General Information Sessions and Tours on most weekdays at 10 AM and General Campus Tours (without an information session) most weekdays at 1 PM. We do not offer Saturday visits during the summer. Our tours leave promptly at their start times. Visitors who arrive late will be given a map so that they may walk the campus on a self-guided tour.
