Campus visits hosted by the University and Gies Undergraduate Admissions offices have been suspended indefinitely. We're disappointed that we're unable to host you and your family at this time, but we offer many virtual options to help you learn more about us, our campus, and what life is like here. We'd love to have you attend one of these opportunities.
