We will customize the day to you and it will most likely include: observing a class or two, eating lunch with a current student, and an admission information session, interview and/or tour. Meeting with a coach or faculty member can also be an addition to your day on campus. To plan your day visit, please indicate your interest on the special requests section of our visit form, or call (610) 409-3200. We require at least one week notice for day visits. Please plan to stay for most of the day you request. Timing is based on class availability and the timing of registration.
