Overnight-Shadow Days provide admitted students an opportunity to stay in a first-year residence hall, attend events or meetings, and sit in on classes – all in one visit.

While we cannot guarantee you will be placed with a specific student, we will do our best to pair you with someone we feel you will be most compatible. In selecting both your overnight and shadow hosts, we consider your major, hometown, extracurricular activities, and other interests.

A sample schedule is below. Space is limited for each event.

We are in the Central Time zone, the same time as Chicago.
