High School & Community Organization Group Visits

Group visits are available for high school teachers, counselors or community leaders to bring prospective students who are in 9th-12th grade to campus.

Our group visits provide students with an overview of the college admissions process, promote higher education as an attainable goal, and allow students to experience campus.

Groups may customize their visit by selecting sessions to meet their students’ needs including  an information presentation led by an admissions representative, a student-led walking tour of campus, a presentation from one of our campus partners, a student panel presentation, an interactive activity, and lunch on campus.

Visits typically include at least three sessions and last for three hours. Learn more about reservations, group sizes, and visit activities below, and check availability on the reservation calendar to request your visit today.

You are encouraged to build a visit that is unique to your group. When making your reservation, you will have a number of options and activities to choose from. Most visits include:

  • Welcome (15 minutes)
  • Admissions presentation (40 minutes)
  • Walking tour of campus (1.5 hours)
  • Lunch (1 hour – optional)

*Please note that we will make every effort to fulfill each request/option. However, we cannot guarantee that every request will be met.

Reservations are required for group visits and must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Dates fill up quickly, so please be sure to check the calendar often and register as soon as you know your preferred date(s). We encourage earlier reservations to better ensure that your group is able to come on your desired date and we are able to meet your group’s needs.

If you need to cancel your visit, we ask for 48 hours notice (excluding weather-related or unavoidable issues).
