Visit the College

The health and safety of our visitors is our top priority.

All on-campus events, visits, and information sessions are canceled for the foreseeable future in an effort to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our community. We are not able to provide a specific date as to when visits will resume and are offering virtual visits during this time.
