  • A list of departments and offices on campus with contact information and locations

During the day, you will have time to visit academic departments, athletics staff, and support offices on your own time. You’re welcome to drop by a department during business hours on your visit date, or plan ahead by contacting the department ahead of time to schedule an individual appointment.
