Virtual Experiences

The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to close campus to visitors, so we have created this site to serve as an online Admitted Student Day. Browse our recorded and live panels below, and check back as we add more content. One of our greatest strengths is our uniquely warm, supportive community. If you would like to talk to a current student, faculty member, or a member of our alumni about what it's like to join that community, please let us know. We are looking forward to seeing you next fall.
