Fall Visit Opportunities

September 1, 2016  |  Events

As we get back into the swing of the school year, we’re continuing to improve our programming in the Office of Admission to ensure that every student who comes to campus has a productive and enjoyable visit. This semester, we’re offering a number of visit opportunities both throughout the week and on weekends in order to accommodate all of our prospective students’ needs.

Weekday Visits

Weekday visits are offered twice-daily, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and include a student-led tour and an appointment with one of our admission counselors.

Saturday Visits

Hood College is open on many Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Saturday visits include a group presentation and a student-led tour. This semester, Saturday visits will be held on the following dates:

  • August 27

  • September 3, 10, and 17

  • October 1 and 22

  • November 5 and 19

  • December 3 and 10

“Blazer for a Day” Campus Visits

“Blazer for a Day” is an extended visit option that allows students to sit in on a class of their choosing, eat lunch in the dining hall, take a student-led tour of campus, and meet with an admission counselor. Visits are customizable, and can include meetings with the financial aid department, professors, or coaches, among other options.

Fall Open Houses

This fall, we will have two open houses for high school students in all grades to attend. Current students, faculty and staff members will be on hand to talk to students and their families about academics, life on campus, the financial aid process and anything else that you want to know more about. Campus tours will be offered throughout the event.
