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.


Join other visiting families for our morning or afternoon McDaniel Information Session and Tour on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays throughout the summer. We’ll share highlights of the McDaniel Experience, important information about applying for admission and scholarships and financing your McDaniel education, followed by a walking tour of campus.


Throughout the fall, we will host Discover McDaniel Days -- a series of small group visit weekday and weekend events specifically targeted to high school seniors  – as well as three First Thursdays at McDaniel. Registration for these events will open in mid-August. View available dates and more information here.


Individual Day at McDaniel visits (available during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session) allow you to build a customized visit experience that meets your own personal interests, needs and schedule. Due to high demand during the spring, preferential scheduling is given to admitted students for the Fall of 2019.


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.

Visit Early and Waive Your Application Fee

We believe that seeing the campus is so important that we will waive your application fee if you schedule an official visit to the campus through the Admissions Office before you apply for admission. It’s our way to encourage you to explore our vibrant community and discover for yourself if McDaniel is right fit for your college years.

Registration is required for all programs and is limited to the student and two guests.

Please contact the Office of Admissions at 800-638-5005 or e-mail us to schedule your visit. Please include your full name and address, current high school and enrollment term so we can better serve you.
