Hendrix College 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!

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 that you wish to ask about the department.

Note: Meetings are dependent on the professors' schedules and are subject to change.

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. We'll even provide transportation to and from the airport if you're traveling alone. 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!

Overnight Stays must be requested at least one week in advance and are scheduled for the evening prior to your Individual or Hendrix Experience Day.
