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.


Each day we host a morning and afternoon McDaniel Information Session and Tour. You’ll join other visiting families as we share highlights of the McDaniel Experience as well as important information about applying for admission and scholarships and financing your McDaniel education. Following the information session, you’ll take a walking tour of our hilltop campus with our student ambassadors and have the chance to speak with one of our admissions counselors about your specific interests and questions.


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, and we invite you to join the McDaniel community during one of our two spring Admitted Student Days. Speak with professors and students about the wealth of opportunities in and out of the classroom and highlights of the departments that interest you most, get answers to any remaining questions you have, begin to envision your personalized McDaniel experience, and meet many of the students and staff who make McDaniel special.


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 2018.


In the spring, we host two Discover McDaniel Days specifically targeted to high school juniors. Our weekday programs include 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.


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.
