Who can attend?

All prospective students can participate in the Gies Shadow Program this upcoming Fall semester. Due to space limitations, students can only participate in one Shadow Day visit. 

In Spring semesters, the Gies Shadow Program is only open to incoming freshmen who have been directly admitted to Gies.

When are Shadow Days held?

In Fall 2020, Shadow Days are held on Tuesdays from 9:30 - 11 am CT. Dates may change due to course schedules, specifically exams. Updates will be made to reflect those changes during the semester.
