Bear Pride Night

Why is a campus visit so important?

The campus visit is a vital step in the admissions process.  It allows prospective students to see if the campus is the right "fit."  A visit also shows the admissions staff that you are serious about Potsdam and have a high level of interest in making this your home for the next four years.  Finally, prospective students get the chance to interview with an admissions counselor.  This is the time for students to ask  questions and to showcase their abilities both in and out of the classroom.
