Your visit may include a meeting with an admissions counsellor, a campus tour, class observation, meetings with faculty members or sports coaches, attending a class, and staying overnight in residence. We will do our best to accommodate additional needs or requests you may have. Campus visits can be arranged by contacting Student Services.
