Visitor Events

Campus is open and ready to host you for a visit! Check out our variety of visit opportunities, both in-person and virtual.

Personalized Visit

Each guest will be asked to follow university guidelines and wear a mask indoors as well as maintain social distancing practices when possible. Please bring your own mask.
Campus visits include a campus tour and a one-on-one meeting with an admissions representative.
Please keep in mind, your visit may be in a group. If you are uncomfortable with this, we are happy to accommodate you. Please reach out to your recruiter directly.

While we would prefer to visit with you in person, if you are unable to come to campus, we encourage you to schedule a virtual visit here.

Our admissions advisors will also be traveling the country to meet with you and your family face to face. If you are interested in being the first to hear about these events, please fill out this form. If you have any additional questions, please contact your admissions advisor

Once a student is accepted for admission, they will need to attend one of the three Bison Bound sessions. At Bison Bound, future students will register for classes, get their IDs, parking passes, and take care of other necessary registration steps. Who knows, they might even meet their future roommate!

A few days before fall classes begin, accepted students will attend Impact -  Harding's new student orientation. Students will move into their dorms, meet other students, and begin their journey at Harding with a weekend of fun!
