Architectural education is unlike any type of education you’ve likely encountered to date. We highly encourage you to attend one of our architecture-specific information sessions online or in-person.

General Weekday Campus Visits

The School of Architecture offers in-person, architecture-specific information sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 11:00am ET through November. In December, these will be reduced to Mondays and Fridays only.
