Private College Week is a chance for you and your family to check out what Indiana Private Colleges have to offer. From Monday, July 21, through Friday, July 25, Indiana’s 31 non-profit independent colleges and universities are inviting students, families, and anyone else interested to come experience their campuses through free tours and informational sessions.
Visiting a campus can be an instrumental part of making your college decision. Campus visits can provide information and experiences that cannot be gotten through websites, brochures, or other sources. This is a great opportunity to see what each of our unique campuses has to offer!
View a complete list of participating campuses at icindiana.org, as well as information about the tour and event schedules at each. There is no need to register with ICI; simply contact individual admissions departments to set up visits. Now is a great time to start selecting the campuses you want to visit, put your tour schedule together, and find out how to let the campuses know you are coming.
Links to driving directions, campus maps, event schedules, admissions officers and other helpful information can be found on college websites.
