Create your individual visit
Let us know what your interests are and we'll create a visit tailored just for you. Tour campus with a Student Ambassador. Get the inside scoop on campus events like Spring Fling and Pi Day, favorite study spots, and life in our historic and newly renovated residence halls. Meet with your admission counselor to discuss scholarships and financial aid, talk to a professor or coach, sit in on a class and enjoy lunch with current students in our recently remodeled dining hall. Then, wrap up your visit by cheering on one of our 20 Yotes athletic teams, listening to a concert, watching a play or taking part in one of the hundreds of other fun and intellectually engaging events that take place on campus each year.
Visits during the school year (September through May) are recommended as this is the best time to see what the C of I experience is all about. Individual visits are conducted between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. most weekdays during the school year, and between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. most Saturdays. Some dates will not be available due to semester breaks, exam times, holidays, and other scheduled events.
Individual visits can be arranged most weekdays with some exceptions for holidays, exam times and other special events. To schedule your individual visit, call our visit coordinator at 800-2C-IDAHO or 208-459-5305, email us at email@example.com or book your visit online. Please allow one week’s notice so that we can tailor your visit to your interests.
Discovery Days (open houses for prospective students) are offered in the fall, winter and spring. They provide an opportunity for you to meet faculty members, current students and admission staff and learn about The College of Idaho experience. For high school seniors wishing to attend a Discovery Day, fall or winter are generally best and leave plenty of time to complete the admission process to the College. High school sophomores and juniors and their families are welcome to attend a fall, winter or spring Discovery Day, or one of the group visit days in the summer.
Group visit days in the summer focus on providing information that is especially helpful for high school sophomores and juniors and their families. To participate in a group visit event, call our visit coordinator at 800-2C-IDAHO or 208-459-5305, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or view our upcoming visit events online.
