Summer Academic Visit Days
Between Monday, July 21 and Friday, August 8, we will offer special academic presentations to enhance your visit to campus. These presentations will be offered in addition to our information session and campus tour. While walk-ins are always welcome, we ask that you pre-register so that we can prepare for your arrival. Register for a visit and for specific presentations.
The academic presentations include topics such as Business and Technology, Civil and Architectural Engineering, Computer Science and Interactive Media and Game Development, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Overview, Life Sciences, Math and Physics, Robotics Engineering, and more. A detailed schedule for the various options is now available.
This program is offered during lunch on the first Monday of each month. It is a great way to speak with current pre-health students and the pre-health advisor about program offerings, along with a variety of academic topics. If you wish to attend, please register in advance.
