Academic Sessions

Offered by our individual colleges, some majors, and other academic programs, these sessions are a great way to enhance your visit to campus and learn more about your chosen field of study. Make sure you check to see when these sessions are available and plan your visit accordingly. During our peak visit weeks in March & April, additional sessions may be offered.

You must individually register for each session you plan to attend. Registration for one event does not guarantee space in a campus tour or other academic session.

Please note: the reservation form will ask how many guests are in your party. The number of guests should NOT include the student, as the student is the primary registrant for the event.
