To arrange your personal visit, contact us two weeks before your arrival so we can schedule a visit that suits your needs; less than two weeks could mean the date and time you desire is already filled to capacity.

If emailing, do so two weeks in advance and include the following:

  • name
  • address, city, state, and zip
  • daytime phone number
  • year of graduation & name of high school
  • academic interest
