“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 be created to include meetings with the financial aid department, professors and coaches, among other options.

Spring Break Daily Visit Opportunities

During the spring break dates for Maryland counties (March 21 – April 4), we will be offering additional daily visit options.  In addition to our regular 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. campus visit time slots, we will be offering arrival times at 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.  These visits will include an admission interview and student-led campus tour.

Admitted Students’ Day

On April 9, students who have been admitted to Hood College are invited to come to campus to learn more about what it means to be part of our thriving community. During this program, students will have an opportunity to attend two classes, attend a showcase of student clubs and organizations, take an inside look at the campus and residence halls, meet with faculty members and much more.  We are also offering campus programming on Friday evening prior to the Admitted Students’ Day event, which we will be registering students for separately.  Programming will be from 6:30pm until 10:30 p.m. and will include dinner, an opportunity to meet student leaders and Think Fast Trivia with current students.  This programming does not include an opportunity to spend the night on campus.

Spring Open House

This year’s Spring Open House is on Saturday, April 30. Current students, faculty and staff members will be on hand to talk to you and your family about academics, life on campus, the financial aid process and anything else that you want to know more about. Campus tours will be offered.
