What is a Typical Schedule for a Visit?

Visits are scheduled individually, and take approximately two hours. Either morning or afternoon visits can be accommodated. You will meet one-on-one with several professors and have a chance to discuss the lifestyle of a student and the career opportunities for our majors. You also will tour some of the department's research facilities, such as the Edwards Accelerator Lab, the most powerful accelerator in the State of Ohio. If you also want to talk to a current undergraduate student, a meeting can be arranged. In addition, the Admissions Office offers tours that can be scheduled separately.
