Finding the right college is a tricky process. Between brochures and applications, viewbooks and videos, it can get a little overwhelming. That’s why a campus visit is important. Sometimes to picture yourself there, you have to be there.

And when you do arrive, we want to make your campus visit perfect, so we created a whole event tailored to you – your interests and passions, questions and concerns.

At Go To Mines, high school and transfer students of all ages and their families can talk with professors one-on-one, learn about our research, explore campus and the dorms – and get insider tips on campus life, the application process, scholarships, and financial aid, from students who have already done it all. We also hold a Go Women ice cream social, where prospective female students can ask current ones about everything from dorms and dining halls to professors and job fairs.

As you stroll through the Quad or our state-of-the-art labs brimming with possibility, the excitement is infectious. And suddenly it hits you. I’m home.
