  • Check out our new Student Center, the hub of student clubs and organizations — and home to an awesome food cafe, Mort’s.
  • Attend one of our many fascinating seminars, performances, or cultural events.

This Just In

Tours are available most Mondays through Friday. Combine a tour with a visit to Mystic, a short 15 minute drive from campus; walk, learn, and reward yourself! Campus tours are offered year round.  Are you unable to make a personal visit?  Please see this virtual tour.

High School Juniors: Now is a great time to acquaint yourself with our Avery Point campus. Plan your introductory tour today, and follow up with our Open House this November.
