Here's what's in store for you.

Check-In

Tours begin at 10 a.m. You can check-in any time between 8:30 and 10 a.m. at the campus of your first program tour. You'll get a guide with a schedule of activities. Take a look at the options. Review the map. Then, plot your course for the day. This experience is all out about you.

Academic Exploration Fair

If you aren't 100% sure which major is for you, check out the Academic Exploration Fair from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Faculty and deans will introduce program offerings that could be the perfect fit. 

The fair includes a select group of programs and is only available on main campus and at the Earth Science Center. 

Academic Tours

Next, you’ll check out your top two areas of interest. Guided lab tours depart at 10 and 11:30 a.m. Meet faculty tour guides at designated meeting locations before your tour times to ensure you catch the group before the tour begins.  

 

Open Lab Time

Interested in looking at other programs? We got you. Labs for most majors will be open during Open House from 1 to 2:30 p.m. This is the ideal time to swing by program areas you want to learn a little more about.

This is where you get to dive into the college experience beyond academics. Want to see residence halls? We'll be rolling out the red carpet. Interested in clubs and organizations? Current students will be ready and thrilled to tell you all about them. Dining locations will be open, too. Optional activities run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
