If you have the time to stay awhile, you can live as a Redhawk for a day! In an extended visit, you’ll:
- Meet with a faculty member or advisor one-on-one in your area of study,
- Sit in on a class related to your major,
- Take a student-led campus tour, and
- Meet with an admissions counselor or hear an Admissions presentation.
After you submit your request (see button below), our Redhawk Ambassadors will personally coordinate the details of your visit and make your campus arrangements. Your Ambassador will follow up to let you know they are arranging your personalized schedule and send your itinerary before you arrive.
Extended visits are offered during the school year between October and May. Click the button below to select a date (be sure to click "confirm on the last page after verifying your guest count). Please note that, in order to arrange your personalized experience, extended visits requests must be made two weeks prior to the date of your visit. Correspondence will be sent via email.
Extended visits are not available during the summer as we are not able to offer faculty meetings or class visits.
Some tips for your Extended Visit:
- While we make every effort to work with your schedule, Extended Visits generally require guests to be available from approximately 9 AM - 3 PM.
- Check your email after your scheduling your Extended Visit; our Redhawk Ambassadors will be getting in touch with you regarding your schedule.
- Try to arrive to the Admissions and Alumni Building (marked ADAL on the campus map) 15 minutes prior to your first appointment.
- Mom, Dad and other family members/friends are welcome to join you for the campus tour and admissions meetings, but faculty respectfully request that only prospective students shadow classes.
- If meeting with a faculty member or advisor, brainstorm a list of questions to ask. Examples include:
- What are the internship opportunities available in this department/major?
- In what ways do professors in this department utilize the city of Seattle in their classes?
- At what point will I begin taking major-specific courses?
- Are there opportunities for undergraduate research in this program?
- What do you expect of students in your classroom?
- What are office hours like in this department?
- If shadowing a class, arrive a few minutes early to introduce yourself to the professor and ask what will be covered in that day's class. Please turn off electronic devices and be respectful of the professor and SU students in the class. We recommend you stay for the duration of the class; however, if you need to leave early, plan to sit close to the door.
