Day Visits

Please check back in the Fall for day visit opportunities!

High School Seniors are invited to spend a day on campus and attend classes with a current student host who shares your interests. Day/overnight visits afford you the opportunity to meet faculty, administrators, and students to gain a greater understanding of the Gettysburg Experience.

Your day/overnight visit will begin when you arrive at the Admissions Office (Eisenhower House) on the day of your visit; arrival time will be designated by your host coordinator.

Plan to depart by early- to mid-afternoon of that day, or the following day (for overnight visits). During a day visit, parents are welcome to take a campus tour, enjoy some quiet time on campus or walk around the town of Gettysburg (only a few blocks away from campus).

Highlights of a typical day visit (your class schedule may vary):

  • Meet your student host in the Admissions Office
  • Attend classes with your student host
  • Eat meals with your host and their friends in the dining center
  • Meet with a professor
  • Campus tour
  • Q & A with a member of the admissions staff

In order to best meet your needs, we ask that you schedule your day or overnight visit 3-5 days in advance.

For further assistance please contact the Admissions Office at 800-431-0803 or 717-337-6100.
