Visit Days

Fall Visit Day and Junior Preview Day are designed to give prospective students and parents a chance to learn what The University of Mississippi is really like directly from faculty and currently enrolled students. Visit Days normally include campus tours, academic fairs, financial aid sessions, student-to-student panel discussion, and a residence hall open house.

During Fall Visit Day, students interested in art and art history are invited to visit the Department of Art and Art History.
