Visiting Hillsdale College promises a memorable opportunity to experience the unique elements of this undergraduate community, the highlights of which include a picturesque campus, an ambitious and active student body, and friendly, dedicated faculty and staff. Visits are offered most days of the academic year and typically include a campus tour with a current student, a meal in the dining hall, a class lecture for the prospective student*, an interview with an admissions representative, and an optional night in a residence hall. Special interest appointments, such as meeting with an athletic coach or attending a fine arts rehearsal, can often also be arranged. Campus maps and directions to Hillsdale College are available here.
Two weeks’ advance notice is requested for all visits. During the peak admissions months of October, November, March, and April, three weeks’ notice is advised.
