Whether you are still in the process of making your final college decision or already committed to SRU, this event is designed for students and families to learn more about The Rock. Not only will students get time with current SRU students and parents/guardians with staff from various campus departments, you’ll learn about Housing, how SRU prepares students for life after college, have the opportunity to meet individually with financial aid, tour campus and residence halls, and more!

Multicultural Admitted Students Days

This special event welcomes admitted students and families from historically underrepresented and underserved groups to explore SRU.

How is this different than the Admitted Student Days? Families will learn about the multicultural student experience and be introduced to academic and campus life services committed to supporting a diverse student body. The day will also include financial aid session for parents, meeting with current students, a mock class, tour of campus and lunch in our dining hall.

Students who are interested in meeting with faculty from their academic department can register for the Faculty Information Session that will occur directly after the event at 3:00pm.
