This program will continue in the spring semester, 2021.

Experience a day in the life of a Gies student

Want to find out what it’s like to be a part of Gies? Our Gies Shadow Program provides an opportunity for you to attend a class with a current student, learn more about academics and campus life, and meet the Gies family.
