Parent tours and Preview Days are an opportunity for prospective parents to connect with a member of the admission team and observe our faculty and students in action. Parent tours typically last for about one hour. 

Student Shadow: 
Prospective students are welcomed to campus as a piece of their application process. We provide students the opportunity to visit campus and spend time in class with their prospective peers. During their shadow visit, your student can also expect to take a short admission assessment.
