An admissions representative and current student session includes an overview of the admissions process, financial aid, curriculum, career development, and student activities.

A current student session discusses the student experience including what to expect during your first-year (1L), experiential learning opportunities, and student life.

Both are day and evening class visits options. Class visitors must check-in at Admissions 15 minutes prior to the class for the room assignment, arrive to the class 5 minutes early, introduce themselves to the professor, and plan to stay for the entire class period.
