Resources for families to plan Minnesota Private College Week visits
With the end of the school year fast approaching, students and families may not have put summer college visits on their radar yet, but Minnesota Private College Week can help them check it off their summer to-do list. This year’s event runs June 26-30 with sessions from 9:30 to noon and 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day on all 17 of our campuses.
Students can register themselves or parents can do it for them, and we recommend visiting more than one campus. When we survey parents and students after the event, nearly half wish they had gone on more visits!
We’ve also created following resources to help families plan their visits; please consider sharing these:
- what past students and parents had to say about event
- our tips on how to make the most their visit
- directions and parking info for each campus
- transportation options if they can’t or don’t want to drive
- suggestions on how to make a road trip out of it
Need to register students for Minnesota Private College Week?
We’ve created a group visit registration spreadsheet to make it easier for you to register your group, especially if you’re planning to bring a large one. You can find it under “Registration is highly recommended” (item #2) on our website.
Our article on coordinating group summer visits also might be a good read if you’re planning on bringing a group.
