The Graduate School provides several opportunities for prospective students to visit campus and meet with faculty and staff to learn how Hood’s graduate programs prepare students to go further in their lives, in their careers and in their communities. Once enrolled, new students are invited to orientations that introduce them to the campus, student amenities and faculty.
Prospective students open house
Open House sessions are typically offered on the third Tuesday of January, March, June and October at 12—1 p.m. and 4:30—6 p.m. at the Whitaker Campus Center. These events offer an opportunity for prospective students to:

- Learn how Hood can help you achieve your goals
- Bring your résumé and transcript
- Apply for on-the-spot admission
