Students will stay overnight in one a residence halls, take a campus tour, sit in on classes, complete an interview with the Office of Admission, participate in a hands-on computer science workshop and more. There will also be discussions on admission policies, financial aid opportunities, campus resources and the benefits of pursuing a technical degree at a liberal arts college.

The deadline to apply is August 22, 2016 and they’re two weekends to choose from:

September 29–October 1
