Admitted Student Days Schedule

Our Admitted Student Days provide admitted students and their families an in-depth campus experience as they make their final college decision including exposure to academic, housing, and student life opportunities at Marquette. 

This event is designed for student who have not yet made the decision to attend Marquette.  Next steps will be shared (summer orientation, move-in dates, etc.) but this is not orientation.  If you have placed your deposit and are planning to attend Marquette in the fall, we encourage you to register for SPARK (Summer Priority Advising and Registration Kick-Off).  To register for SPARK, log in to your student portal.  

The event is offered twice with the main events taking place on Saturday, April 4 and Saturday, April 18. We offer an optional, additional visit day on the Friday before each of the main events to allow visitors to sit in on a Marquette class and take campus and residence hall tours during a typical class day.

We encourage you to review the options below and to plan an adventure for your time on campus. A full detailed schedule of events and a campus map will be available at check-in on the day of each event.
