Visiting our campus is the best way to discover McDaniel. Unfortunately, at this time, McDaniel has made the difficult but necessary decision to close the Office of Admissions to visitors to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). As we adjust to these changing dynamics, please check out our Virtual Visit Options. We’ve done our best to package our regular visits into this new digital format to keep you informed and help propel you forward on your college search process. Get ready to discover all that our community can do for you!

Conversations

Identifying whether or not a college is right for you requires seeing it for yourself.  We hope to continue to provide prospective students a wide variety of visit experiences to meet your needs during this time of COVID-19 (coronavirus). In addition to Live McDaniel, we will be hosting a variety of virtual conversations to fit your needs. 

Counselor Conversations: with your personal admissions counselor so that you can connect with them individually. These sessions will give you the chance to ask more specific questions or just check in with us because you’re missing human interaction.

Financial Aid Fridays: Financial Aid is huge part of the decision-making process when deciding which school is the best fit. So, we are bringing our Financial Aid team to you with Financial Aid Fridays! Have questions about your financial aid award letter? Need to know how to file the FAFSA? Want to learn about Parent PLUS Loans? Hang out with our specialists so they can give you the breakdown of financial aid basics and answer any of your burning questions.

Featured Campus Conversations: Looking to connect with other members of our campus community? Well, look no further because our Featured Campus Conversations aim to do just that. Get to know members of offices such as Residence Life, Student Engagement, and the First Year Team. Chat with student ambassadors to hear about their current McDaniel experiences. Whatever questions you may have, we hope that these sessions will help you to envision yourself as a member of the Green Terror community.
