Students on a tour

Preview Days

Take opportunity to meet with faculty and staff members, future students, and current students to find out why you should Go West!

What are preview days?

We understand that there are numerous events that have been planned to be held on campus in the next two weeks during our suspension of instruction. In the best interest of all involved parties – both internal campus stakeholders and visitors to campus – the university will postpone or cancel all events taking place on campus and any off-campus Admissions hosted events between March 16 - May 7. You can view all of our virtual options by clicking here.

We are monitoring this fluid situation closely and will reevaluate our position on events taking place after May 7. We will know more soon and will offer guidance as we can.
