Join Us for Fall Visit Days! (Virtual Only)

Due to ongoing limitations resulting from Covid-19 and related mandates issued by the state of Massachusetts, we recently learned that we are not able to host on-campus events this fall as planned. However, in addition to online opportunities currently offered below, we invite you to get to know our community at one of our virtual Fall Visit Days. 
During these Fall Visit Day events, presented in separate blocks so you can attend the sessions that interest you most, you’ll learn about the university’s renowned academic offerings, application and admission process, financial aid, student life, and more from our admission counselors, current students, select faculty, and others. 

So mark your calendar for one of the following dates!

  • September 19 & 26
  • October 4, 18, & 25

Online registration opens on August 31. If you haven’t already, sign up here to receive an email invitation
