Explore what it's like to be a Miner

More than a typical college tour, this immersive event for admitted students will give you the opportunity to experience life as a Miner.


Choosing the right university is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.  That’s why we are inviting you to be a Miner for a day. 

Here are just a few of our planned activities:

  • Networking opportunities with current faculty, staff and students
  • Hands-on design project experience
  • Exclusive exposure to campus involvement and resources

Register for Miner Immersion

Miner Immersion events begin at 8:30 a.m. The cost to attend the event is $50. 

*Please note that event space is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.
