On-Campus Events

We're excited to welcome prospective students back to for in-person events this fall! Please find our on campus events below, including class observations and campus visit days. We also will be offering a variety of virtual events for students who are not able to travel to campus. 

Campus Visit Days

The single best way to decide whether Heller is the right place for you is to visit us. While visiting, you can spend time with faculty, students and staff and immerse yourself in our program and community.
