    Meet with students, faculty, and admission staff one of our various open house programs throughout the academic year.

    An interview with an admission counselor is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know you beyond your application. These conversations allow you to highlight your unique combination of interests, involvements, and passions, while exploring how they may find a home at Southwestern. These interviews may also fulfill your test-optional interview requirement.
