Visit McDaniel

See Yourself Here

Do you wonder what the campus community really looks like during the academic year when there are deadlines, readings, a half-dozen options for cool things to do, and a sudden desperate need for more caffeine before the next class? When you visit the Hill, you’ll see the real McDaniel in action — and you’ll want to be a part of it all. Choose the type of program that best meets your needs.


Start now and schedule a visit to McDaniel College with one of our Daily Visits offered on weekdays, which include an information session discussing highlights of the McDaniel Experience, important information about applying for admission and scholarships, and financing your McDaniel education as well as a tour of our hilltop campus with our student ambassadors.


Whether this is your first, second, or third visit to McDaniel, if you are an admitted first year student we want to be sure that you have all of the information you need to Choose McDaniel. In the spring, we will invite you to join the McDaniel community during one of our two spring Admitted Student Days to make sure all of your questions have been answered. Registration for admitted first-year students is now open.


In the spring, we host two Discover McDaniel Days specifically targeted to high school juniors. Our weekday program includes a class visit, parent sessions, a campus tour and lunch in the dining hall. Our Sunday program is a great introduction to the McDaniel community, and we encourage you to choose the visit that best suits your needs and schedule.


Individual Day at McDaniel visits (available September through early May) allow you to build a customized visit experience that meets your own personal interests, needs and schedule. Due to high demand during the spring semester, preferential scheduling is given to admitted students for the Fall of 2017.


Are you a counselor interested in bringing a group to visit campus?  Group Visits are considered during the fall and spring semester for selected dates and times based on Admissions Staff availability. For more information and available dates, visit our Group Visits Page.
