The Vassar College Office of Admission cordially invites you and your family to visit our campus for our fall open houses on either Monday, October 9 or Friday, November 10.  You may come for the morning OR afternoon session on either day. The schedule of activities is available here and will be the same on each day.

To register for either the Columbus Day or Veterans Day Open House, select the appropriate date (October 9 or November 10) on the campus visit calendar and complete the Campus Visit form.

**While registration is encouraged, walk-in visitors are always welcome.** 

Please Note:  Our Columbus Day program this year overlaps with Vassar’s Fall Break and most students will not be on campus, so we will not be offering overnights or class visits.  Additionally, due to the high volume of visitors, no class visits will be available for the November 10th date. Interested high school seniors can learn more about Class Visits and Overnight Visits on our visit webpage.

 

Directions to the college and information about local overnight accommodations can be found at www.vassar.edu/visitors.
