During the first week in August, Iowa’s 26 private colleges and universities invite you and your parents to explore our campuses, visit with professors, meet coaches, chat with current students, and learn all about academic and social opportunities.
Why attend? These college campuses synchronize schedules so you can tour at least two campuses a day. Plus, when you register, you’ll be entered into great drawings for prizes like iPad Minis, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, Bluetooth speakers, iTunes gift cards and more. Let’s get registered!
Can’t attend? No sweat. You can register to visit any of these colleges at any time. When you register, simply select, “I would like to visit, but can't make it during Iowa Private College Week” on the form. Choose the colleges you would like to visit and a representative from the college’s admissions team will reach out to you to find a convenient time to schedule a personalize visit. It’s as easy as that! (You’ll still be entered into our drawing, too!)
Tour times. Tours are scheduled twice each day at each campus: 9 a.m. for the first session and 1:30 p.m. for the second session. We do this so that families can optimize their time and complete up to two campus visits per day or a total of 10 campus visits during the week.
Why should I visit colleges?
Campus visits are important!! Remember, this college research time is all about finding your fit. The best way to learn if a college fits you is to get on the campus and experience it for yourself. Register today!
