Admissions Launches Virtual Visit, Extends Reply Deadline to June 1

April is always busy in the undergraduate admissions office. We’ve admitted more than 4,000 students to the fall 2020 class, and in a typical year, we’d expect many of them to visit campus before the May 1 reply deadline. However, this year is anything but typical.

In recognition that our admitted students are facing unprecedented challenges, we’ve made the decision to extend the reply deadline for this year to June 1. We feel strongly that this is the right move for our admitted students and are working with campus offices to adjust the timeline for summer activities in preparation for New Student Orientation.

Keep in mind that April will still be busy! Since students and families are unable to experience our beautiful campus in person, we’re doing our best to bring the visit experience to them. Check out our new Virtual Visit page. And feel free to tune in to our live campus tour and admissions Q&A on the L&C Instagram page every Wednesday starting at 3 p.m.

Many thanks to the numerous offices and departments that have come forward to help us provide interactive opportunities for students to learn more about the L&C experience!
