Schedule a Visit to Mines - Come See For Yourself
A great way for a prospective undergraduate student to get a feel for the
School of Mines is to attend a Go To Mines Open House event. Scheduled periodically throughout the year, students and parents get a comprehensive tour
of the campus, meet faculty members from all the departments, get questions
answered from the Admissions staff, and meet other prospective Mines students and parents.

You can schedule a visit weekday mornings or afternoons (9:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
Mountain Time) or by special appointment at many other times. An admissions
professional will be available to answer your questions about the application
process and about our engineering and science programs. You can also meet with
a financial aid counselor, a member of the faculty, and tour campus with a
student ambassador to observe students and faculty members working together on
research. We can personalize your visit
by arranging for a tour of the departments or labs that you are especially interested
