General information on campus visits
Consider planning a weekday trip to campus to meet with someone who teaches in your field of interest. (Make arrangements beforehand with the department to ensure faculty availability.)

In general, academic departments are happy to arrange visits so you can meet faculty members and tour the department.

Campus tours depart from the Admission Visitors Center weekdays at 10:30am and 2:30pm. You can also visit the Office of Admissions (108 Calvin Hall) without an appointment, weekdays from 8am-4:30pm.
