Visiting the College

Planning a visit during your high school spring break?

Please note that during the weeks of April 10 - 14 and April 17 - April 21 (the two most common high school spring break weeks), our interest sessions will be held from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (not 11:15 a.m.) due to other activities going on these days.

Register now to visit during your spring break

If you can’t make it to our interest session, there will also be an information fair for all majors from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. each day during these two weeks. Please stop by our booth during this time to learn more about us!

Please note, you must also register for an Undergraduate Admissions Information Session prior to your arrival.


If you are unable to register for an admissions information session during High School Spring Break weeks, please attend Hokie Preview: An Open House for Juniors on March 18, 2017.

Register for Hokie Preview


If you have already been admitted, you should plan to attend Hokie Focus: An Open House for Admitted Students, on either April 8th or April 9th, 2017. This will be much more tailored to your needs as an admitted student than a regular visit during your spring break.
