Come Visit Us!

You can read all the brochures and websites you want about what college will be like, but nothing can really prepare you for that feeling when you step on campus. You will get to meet admissions counselors, financial aid counselors, faculty, coaches and current students. You will tour campus, performing arts practice & performance areas, classrooms, a residence hall room and a dining hall. You can also see our extensive art and engineering facilities.
