Hood College offers a variety of visit options to ensure that prospective students and their families have a wonderful campus experience customized to their needs.

Weekday Visits

Weekday visits are offered twice-daily, in the morning and afternoon, and include a student-led tour and an appointment with one of our admission counselors. Visits can also be customized to include meetings with coaches or faculty members.

“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.

Saturday Visits

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

  • February 4 and 18

  • April 22 and 29

Spring Break Daily Visit Opportunities

During the spring break dates for Maryland counties, 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 8, 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 the opportunity to attend two mini-courses of their choosing, 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 an overnight experience with evening programming prior to the Admitted Students’ Day event, which we will be registering students for separately.

Spring Open House

This year’s Spring Open House is on Saturday, March 25. 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.
