Vassar View

Sunday, October 25 - Monday, October 26, 2015

The Office of Admission at Vassar College cordially invites you to participate in our annual Vassar View program, an overnight hosting program for prospective students interested in experiencing the liberal-arts atmosphere and vibrant campus life of Vassar College. This program is open to seniors from traditionally under-represented groups: Asian, Black, Latino/a, and/or Native American (ALANA); and students who are the first in their family to pursue a four-year college education.

Vassar View is designed to immerse students into the campus life of Vassar College through participation in campus events and an overnight stay with current students. During the program, the students will take a tour, sit in on a class, attend presentations on Vassar Admissions and Financial Aid, as well as dine with professors and current students.
