Plus, there will be additional presentations on so much more, including our First-Year Experience and LandSea programs, Study Abroad, and the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership.

Housing for parents is not available on campus, although lodging is available in town. Students must submit a signed copy of the overnight visit policy prior to their arrival on campus.
