High schoolers, it's time to get serious about your college search! Trust us when we say there's no better way to decide if CUW is the right fit for you than to pay us a visit.
And we’re making it easy for you to visit us with our upcoming Visit Days. This year’s Visit Days will be held on:
- Friday, March 26 (Junior Visit Day)
- Friday, April 9 (Junior and Senior Visit Day)
Registration is required.
Visit Days give prospectives the chance to tour campus, hear from faculty and students, and experience some of the perks of CUW life. This year’s attendees will be organized into small groups to allow for social distancing and other COVID safety protocols. Guests are asked to wear masks during their visit.
No matter when you visit, we aim to make the trip wholly worth your while; but if you’re still not convinced, here are a few other reasons to give a Visit Day a try (according to current Falcons who were once in your shoes)!
1) Soak up the atmosphere.
“Probably the biggest benefit of a campus visit is that you get the chance to see things for yourself. Can you picture yourself living here and walking in these halls? Even if you’ve already been on Concordia’s campus before, I still strongly recommend going on an official tour. You get a more complete perspective that way because you’re looking at things in a new light and with a more critical eye.” —Sarah D.
2) Hear what your peers are asking.
“When I did my Visit Day, I had this one family on my tour that asked really insightful questions. They were bringing up stuff that I had never thought of before but that was beneficial to me, so it was like I got to eavesdrop on a very informative conversation! Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know, until someone thinks to ask it on your behalf.” —Madelyne A.
3) Take in the surrounding city scene.
“A campus visit gives you an excuse to see what else is around. Especially if you’re from out of town, I suggest you take some time to drive around Mequon, Grafton, Milwaukee. I think people forget that there’s a lot to be offered just 15 minutes from campus, and when you’re looking for something to do on a weekend, it’s good to have a sense of what else is around.” —Tanner J.
4) Learn more about what YOU want.
“This is your chance to ask follow-up questions, to dive into the specifics of the program you want to study, to see the classrooms, equipment, and other resources that you’ll have available to you as you study. My recommendation is to come prepared with a few questions, just like you would in an interview.” —Jordan F.
5) Find out if these are “your people.”
“I personally think you can get a real good sense of a place after just one visit. You’ll be able to tell if these are ‘your people’ by the way they carry on conversations and how they treat one another. Pay attention to the stuff that’s not ‘scripted’. If people are friendly and welcoming even when they don’t have to be, or when they think people aren’t paying attention, that’s usually a pretty good indication of what real life would be like.” —Emily A.
