Are you ready to Experience Hendrix College this summer?
The Office of Admission is now taking requests for summer campus visits. Individual visits during the summer are available Monday through Friday beginning on Monday, May 13. We will schedule summer visits through Friday, August 16. If you have any questions about scheduling your summer campus visit, feel free to contact Jenn McKenzie, our Campus Visit Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-277-9017.
Summer Individual Experience Days
No vacation plans? Have you thought about a trip to Conway, Arkansas? Although classes are not in session, we are here to show you what our beautiful campus has to offer. Come take a campus walk with a current Hendrix student and chat with your admission counselor while swinging on the front porch of historic Ellis Hall, home of the Admission Office. Sign me up!
Experience Hendrix College during the academic year!
Although stopping by during the summer will give you the wonderful opportunity to take a sneak peak at our beautiful campus, visiting us in the fall or spring when classes are in session is the best way to really Experience Hendrix College. We provide numerous opportunities to visit during the academic year. Information on those opportunities is included below. Check back this fall to sign up for these visits.
Individual Experience Days
The best way to see Hendrix College! Schedule a visit any day Monday through Friday when classes are in session. You'll have the opportunity to sit in on a class, chat with several current students during your guided campus walk, eat in the cafeteria, meet one-on-one with a professor, and talk with your admission counselor – just to name a few of the options. We limit the number of students visiting on an Individual Experience Day, so the day is all about you. Tell us what you hope to get out of your Hendrix Experience!
Hendrix College Experience Days
Are you curious what other students might be looking at Hendrix? Well, this is the best chance to see who might be in your graduating class. Just like Individual Experience Days, Hendrix College Experience Days give you the chance to visit a class, meet current students during your campus walk, taste our award-winning cafeteria food, and chat with the admission staff in a larger setting. While these days offer a great overview of life at Hendrix College, the schedule is not as flexible as that of an Individual Experience Day. If you like what you see during a Hendrix College Experience Day, we encourage you to come again and experience Hendrix your way!
The 2013-14 Hendrix College Experience Days will be announced this summer. Check back later to find out more!
Faculty Conversations - Seniors only
Do you have an idea of what you'd like to study in college, or are you undecided and looking for someone with whom to discuss your options? High school seniors and students looking to transfer to Hendrix College can request to meet one-on-one with a professor. Faculty conversations must be requested at least one week in advance and are limited to one meeting at the time of your visit. We'll do our best to pair you with a professor from one of your academic interests; in return, we ask that you prepare for your meeting by jotting down a few questions about the department that you wish to ask.
Overnight Stays - Seniors only
Want to know about life outside of the classroom? If you're a high school senior, you can schedule an overnight visit! Overnight stays are only available Sunday evening through Thursday evening. They must be requested at least one week in advance and are scheduled for the evening prior to your Individual or Hendrix Experience Day. We'll even provide transportation to and from the airport if you're traveling alone (see additional details below). You need to arrive on campus at Ellis Hall by 6 p.m. the night of your stay, and don’t forget your sleeping bag, favorite pillow, and a towel!
Transportation from/to Little Rock National Airport - Seniors Only
We currently offer transportation between Little Rock National Airport and Hendrix College for high school seniors who are traveling alone. Airport pickups begin at 2 p.m. If your flight arrives prior to this time, please feel free to bring your favorite book to read at the airport while you wait for your ride. Transportation back to the airport begins at 2 p.m. at the conclusion of the Experience Day's schedule.
