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, offered Monday through Friday and on select Saturdays throughout the academic year. 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.


In addition to our daily visits, we will also host a series of small group weekday, weekend, and evening visit events targeted specifically to high school seniors and transfer students. Additional information and online registration for our upcoming Discover McDaniel Days or First Thursdays at McDaniel are available on our Fall Visits Page.


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.
