These events have been canceled for the spring of 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
On Made-to-Order Mondays, high school students can meet with an admissions counselor, tour campus, learn about financial aid, visit a class, meet with faculty, enjoy lunch in one of our dining halls, and much more. The day is yours! Just let us know your preferences by registering at least one week in advance.
If you cannot attend a Made-to-Order Monday, you are still welcome to schedule a personalized visit any day of the week online or by contacing the Office of Admissions at 724-458-2100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be greeted by admissions staff in Crawford Hall (building #1 on the campus map), where you will receive an information packet that includes your itinerary for the day. Then we will point you in the right direction for your first appointment. After your morning appointments, you and your accompanying guests will be provided lunch before you resume activities.
As part of your afternoon schedule, there will be a cookie reception where you will meet President McNulty and explore campus resources including the Office of Career Services, Campus Ministries, Student Life & Learning, Office of Global Programs, and the Department of Music. Throughout the day, you are welcome to stop by the Office of Admissions to get any questions answered.
Once you have signed up for your visit, our staff begins coordinating your appointments. As soon as we have a full schedule confirmed for you, you’ll receive your itinerary via email. Please plan to arrive at Crawford Hall 15 to 20 minutes before your first scheduled appointment. The duration of your visit will depend upon your requested activities.
Please note: if you request a faculty visit but are unsure about your major, let us know which department you are most interested in exploring.

Where is the Office of Admissions?
The Office of Admissions is located on the first floor of Crawford Hall (building #1 on the campus map).
Are the day’s activities for both students and parents/guardians?
Question-and-answer sessions, campus tours, financial aid visits, faculty visits, and lunch are open to prospective students and accompanying guests. Classroom visits are only open to prospective students. Admissions interviews begin with the prospective student only and then parents/guardians are invited in for questions during the last 10 minutes. Accompanying guests of prospective students are welcome to explore campus, visit the Breen Student Union, or relax in the Office of Admissions while prospective students are interviewing or attending a class.
Can I meet with a varsity coach during my visit?
Yes, our coaches love to meet prospective athletes! To schedule an athletic visit, email Jordyn White, Athletic Recruiting and Event Coordinator, with your sport of interest.
Is my visit personalized for me and my family or are we part of a group?
Admissions interviews, question-and-answer sessions, and faculty visits are individual meetings between you/your accompanying guests and the respective faculty/staff member. Walking campus tours, financial aid sessions, classroom visits, and lunch may include multiple guests.
How will I navigate campus on the day of my visit?
Our buildings are centrally located, and campus is easily walkable. If you aren’t certain where you need to go next, just ask someone! Our faculty, staff, and students are happy to help. We recommend reviewing our campus map prior to your visit to get a basic understanding of where buildings are located. You’ll also receive a paper copy of our campus map in your packet when you check in for your visit. Please note: Our campus is divided by Wolf Creek into upper and lower campus. Visitors typically only have appointments on upper campus.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
If you are completing an admissions interview, we recommend bringing a resume for your own reference while meeting with your admissions counselor. If you are going on a walking campus tour, please make sure that you are dressed appropriately for the weather.
