Dates to Visit
Each day lists the courses that are offered. Avoid visit dates for courses that say "not a visit day." See below for which classes to visit.
Classes to Visit
Regardless of your background in Mandarin (many students have none, while others have 6 or more and even lived in China), ALL visiting prospects should consider visiting the Freshman course (CHIN 211 in fall and CHIN 212 in spring). The freshmen are best able to answer questions about the transition into college. The course also allows visitors to see how much is covered in our pre-freshman intensive language program. Each program (high school or college) has its own emphasis and moves at its own pace. This class is the easiest way to calibrate and begin planning for the future. Students with a significant background should consider coming to more advanced courses as well, keeping in mind that in the summers after freshman and sophomore years, students complete an additional year's worth of material.
Best Time(s) of Day
The freshman course (CHIN 211 in fall and CHIN 212 in spring) is offered at 8am. Many of the other courses are offered twice daily. If attending those courses, choose a time that best fits your agenda. We strongly encourage you to make full use of the day to take a campus tour and visit other programs and their classes.
Coordinate Prog. Visits
Campus tours are available on most weekdays through the Admissions office (Schedule a visit). Generically, these are 3-hour events that start either in the morning or the afternoon; however, your priority should be to visit any departments or specialized programs and their classes. If, for example, you need to meet with a program rep at 10am, you may need to miss the first hour of the campus tour (the information session). You can choose to join the tour at 11, when the walking tour begins, and then go to the afternoon information session.
Many of our students are also members in several of the following programs:
The Lott Leadership Institute - policy studies for those interested in pursuing a career in local, state, or national politics
Getting on the Schedule
DO NOT SHOW UP UNANNOUNCED. This calendar is to aid in your scheduling, but course schedules are subject to change. You need to contact the program and receive confirmation before finalizing your travel plans. The Admissions office is equipped to arrange your visit, but it is often a good idea to contact each program you are interested in so they can discuss your specific needs and interest and place you in the most appropriate classes. Many students are members of 2, 3 or even 4 different special programs, so the staff members coordinate regularly to provide the most complete visits possible to prospective students.
All, or nearly all, Flagship courses are held on the 2nd floor of the Croft Institute for International Studies.
