Why Southwestern

Virtual Information Sessions

If you can't come to campus, let us bring the campus to you! While Southwestern has resumed on-campus visits (with new COVID-related health & safety protocols) we are also offering a variety of virtual visit opportunities throughout the week, from general information sessions to interactive presentations highlighting specific areas of academic and campus life. These events are a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Southwestern Experience from anywhere!
