The day centers around activities that allow students and their families to explore the campus and experience the excitement of Bard College classes.

Check-in is at the Reem-Kayden Center from 9:00-9:30 am, where students will be directed to their classes in the Olin Humanities Building. All other visitors will attend a Q&A in Olin Auditorium with Leon Botstein, president of the College. Campus tours begin at Olin. Lunch will be served from 1:00-2:00 pm. Representatives from the Admission, Student Affairs, Career Development, Study Abroad, and Residence Life offices, as well as the Dean of the College, will be available to answer your questions. There will be drop-in 20-minute facility tours at 2:00, 2:30, 3:00, and 3:30. 

In order to have good class discussions, students are encouraged to complete short readings in advance. (These classes are modeled on Bard's First-Year Seminar.) 

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
