Future Students

 
College Close-Up
“College Close-Up” visits include a DAAP Overview, Tour, and either a Student Panel (Mondays) or Information Session (Fridays). The DAAP Overview is an opportunity to learn about our undergraduate programs and the admissions process. DAAP tours, which highlight our facilities, are typically led by DAAP students. Student Panels allow parents and students to ask questions of current DAAP students about DAAP and the university. Information Sessions provide an opportunity for students and guests to learn more about specific majors. These sessions are led by staff or faculty members from each academic area. Our visit schedule was designed to give you time with current students. It is highly recommended that all students interested in DAAP attend a College Close-Up.

College Close-Up visits will be held during Fall Semester 2018 on Mondays and Fridays from Friday, September 7 through Friday, November 30.
