    Hendrix Experience Days

    Visiting campus is a great way to have a meaningful experience of what it's really like to be a student here.

  • What Happens on a Visit?

    Sit in on a class, get to know students on a campus walk, enjoy the cafeteria, meet with a professor, and talk with your admission counselor.

    Faculty conversations must be requested at least one week in advance. 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.
