A Day in Friartown

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​O​n select days, we invite prospective and admitted students to spend A Day in Friartown.

While on campus, you will have the opportunity to:​

  • Be paired up with a current student who will show you their typical day
  • Sit in on classes to directly experience academic life*
  • Meet casually in McPhail’s with several members of our faculty
  • Walk around campus and explore various buildings
  • Enjoy lunch in Raymond Dining Hall​

Parents are invited to a special presentation while students take part in the Day in Friartown program. A panel session will begin at the start of the student’s visit and last approximately 30-45 minutes. An optional tour of campus will follow.​

*Due to the immersive nature of this program, this opportunity is limited to those students who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will be required upon check in. All visitors (parents/guardians of the student who will be on campus at any time) are required to wear masks indoors while on campus, regardless of vaccination status. Questions regarding these requirements may be directed to the Office of Admission in advance of the program.

*Please note that the availability of courses within certain disciplines may be limited. To preserve the learning environment for our current students and the faculty members teaching our courses, we are unable to accommodate specific class visit requests. We thank you for your understanding.​

Day in Friartown will return in Fall ’22 for prospective students. Admitted Students can access information on “Friar for a Day” within the Admission Status Portal.
