Connections Day gives you an early start making connections with your peers, current students, academics, resources, and campus life. Check out our residence halls and enjoy lunch in the Commons. The cost is free for incoming students!

Connections Day also welcomes parents, guardians, and families. They will hear from the Academic Dean's office about the University’s approach to a liberal arts education, senior level administrators about the resources available on campus, participate in various informational breakout sessions, attend a resource fair, and enjoy University food service! The cost for guests is $15 per person, which covers morning coffee, lunch, and an afternoon snack.
