Visit Campus

We think visiting campus should be easy!  That's why we have many different visit options throughout the year to enable you to experience Hood College.  Whether it's your first visit or your fifth, we'll make sure you have the opportunity to learn exactly what makes Hood so special.

Fall open houses

Register online for one of our fall open houses on Sunday, Oct. 26 or Saturday, Nov. 15. Current students, faculty and staff members will be on hand to talk to you and your family about academics, life on campus, the financial aid process and anything else you want to know about the College. Campus tours will be offered.

Weekday visits

Register online for a weekday campus visit, available Monday through Friday during either the morning or the afternoon. During the visit, students will interview with an admission counselor and take a student-led campus tour. Please register one week in advance. 

Blazer for a Day visits

Register online to spend the day on campus and experience what it is truly like to be a Hood student.  These visits are offered Monday-Friday during the sping and fall semesters.  They give students the opportunity to learn more about Hood through an expanded daily visit option.  During the visit students meet with a member of the Hood College admission staff, tour campus with a current Hood student, sit in on a class of his/her choice (while parents have the option to meet with the Financial Aid Office) and eat lunch in our Dining Hall.

Saturday visits
