Academic Information Session - Following lunch, students and their families will attend an information session in their area of academic interest. Options usually include Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Human Physiology, Health sciences/Pre-Med, and Nursing. If students are undecided, they may choose to attend any session.
