Summer Open Campus FAQ's

What if my rep is not having a session, how can I connect with them?  

Each student at Colorado College has access to a direct member of our Office of Admission team. Whether you live in Colorado, the United States, or anywhere across the globe, you have a territory representative that is here to help. Not all reps will be conducting a “Meet your rep” session.  If you are interested in connecting with your rep after this event, please click here to find your reps contact information. 

I am interested in interviewing, how can I sign up? 

Interviews are not being offered during the Virtual Event, but you can sign up to interview after the event.  Interviews are optional and used in the evaluation of admission applications. Interested rising high school seniors (current high school juniors) and transfer students are eligible to interview at this time. We currently offer the opportunity to interview virtually with members of our Admission Fellows team and alumni volunteer network. For more information on our virtual interview request form and process, please click here.  

I am interested in visiting campus, when can I visit in person?

To protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, we are not welcoming outside visitors to campus through Block 2 (October 14) and may need to extend this restriction through Thanksgiving. In the meantime, we encourage you to take our virtual tour.

I am interested in sitting in on a class, is this possible?   

Currently class visits are not being offered.  We hope to offer class visits when the Fall semester starts.  To schedule an on-campus visit in the Fall, click here. You can also observe a class during our Fall Open House.  

How can I ask questions during a session? 

We will be hosting all sessions on Zoom.  To ask a question, type your question into the Q&A box. Click Send. Note: Check Send Anonymously if you do not want your name attached to your question in the Q&A.  If the host replies via the Q&A, you will see a reply in the Q&A window. The host can also answer your question live (out loud). 

I missed a session; will they be recorded? 

All sessions will be recorded and available on the Summer Open Campus website after the event.  Please check the website two weeks after the event for the session recordings.
