In order to confirm your attendance and distribute lunch tickets (if applicable), we will ask you to provide a roster of attendees and their contact information. An excel spreadsheet will be provided. Please return the completed roster form at least 10 days prior to your visit.
Timely Arrival on Campus
Arriving on time for your visit is incredibly important. Please refer to the
driving directions to Mount Pleasant.
Should your group be running more than 15 minutes late, please call our office at 989-774-1840. If your group is running more than 30 minutes late, your visit will need to be rescheduled.
Admissions Welcome Presentation
An Admissions staff member will welcome your group upon arrival and conduct an admissions presentation, focusing on the admissions and application process, scholarships, academics, life on campus, housing and much more.
Led by a student Campus Ambassador, groups will walk through most of campus, making stops at Park Library, a residence hall room, Student Activity Center and academic buildings. The tour takes up to 90 minutes and groups will walk up to 2.5 miles. We encourage groups to dress appropriately for the tour and for the ever changing weather conditions in mid-Michigan.
As part of our commitment to expose students to CMU we will provide a complimentary buffet style lunch.
If you find it necessary to cancel your visit, it is essential that you notify our office as soon as possible. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability for your group.
