Visiting the Hill Large Group Visits Seeing the Possibilities

Out of an abundance of caution, McDaniel has cancelled all group visits and will not be scheduling additional group visits through the fall 2020 semester. However, we do understand that group visits are an important part of developing a college-going culture for schools and organizations. At this time, requests to bring groups of students in 9th through 12th grade are being considered for the Fall 2020 semester. This includes most weekdays beginning in September and running through November. Every group visit includes our "Get to Know McDaniel" Information Session followed by a campus tour.  Lunch in Englar Dining Hall is available for groups that request it and the cost is $9.00 per person.

Please note that middle or elementary school groups cannot be accommodated.
