Visiting Christendom

 

Students and parents are invited to visit the campus, attend classes, and speak with Christendom faculty and staff. Complimentary meals and lodging are provided for prospective students as guests of the College.

Overnight visitors will stay in one of the residence halls with a student ambassador. Campus visits normally last one night and two days, although if necessary, a student may stay two nights. Students may make an overnight visit from Sunday evening through Thursday evening during the academic year. Students who are traveling to Christendom by car should bring sleeping bags or sheets and blankets, as well as towels and pillows, etc. For those who are traveling by plane, they may stay two nights and towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows will be provided.

Overnight visitors may be required to sleep on an air mattress on the floor of their host's bedroom, or sometimes, the host lets the visitor sleep in his/her bed. The student ambassadors may have obligations including classes, studying, meetings, sporting events, or even work-study obligations, and therefore, visiting students may need to spend some time on their own. Visitors are asked to have a flexible attitude!

Students wishing to visit must fill in the Visit Request Form prior to making travel arrangements! Black out dates are listed on the Visit Request Form for your convenience.

Visit Request Form  Overnight Policy Form Directions & Lodging

All prospective students are limited to two (2) official overnight Admissions-sponsored visits to campus. To be classified as an official Admissions-sponsored visit (which includes transportation to/from airport, meal tickets, and bedding), students must sit in on classes and meet with the Admissions Director, among other things. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.

If someone has friends/relatives on campus and would like to visit them/stay with them, these types of visits are made through the current student, and not through the Admissions Office.

Prospective students may make overnight or day visits throughout the fall or spring semesters.

PLEASE NOTE: only High School Juniors, Seniors, and Transfers, 16 years or older, may make an overnight visit and stay in our residence halls. All others may make a day visit or stay in local hotels.

If you would like to schedule a day visit during the summer, please contact Klarissa Blank in the Admissions Office: kblank@christendom.edu or 800-877-5456 ext. 1292. Campus tours are generally given at 10am and 2pm daily, by reservation only.
