4-Year Bachelor of Science Spend a Day at State Visitation Program

Our program is designed for high school juniors, seniors and transfer students interested in a CALS major and is offered on select dates each semester. Available dates may vary based on CALS academic program interest and student grade level. 

CALS Quest Days

This program offers high school freshmen and sophomores who are beginning their college search—and have not decided on a primary major—a chance to hear from current students, see campus and learn about CALS!

This spring, Quest Days are offered on Wednesday, Mar. 27, and Monday, Apr. 15, 2024.
