Campus Visit Program
We invite you to experience our community in the beautiful Charles M. Harper Center. The Campus Visit Program is offered year-round and provides you with the opportunity to spend a half-day with the Booth community and to determine if it’s the right place for you. You can learn more below or register for a visit.
While classes are in session, the full Campus Visit Program schedule is offered, including a class visit, information session, building tour, and lunch with current students. We offer an abbreviated schedule while classes are not in session.

We have 70+ diverse student groups who are all interested connecting with prospective students. We encourage you to reach out to these groups before your visit in order to connect with students in your specific areas of interest while you are on campus.
