On Campus Visit Options

HWS Campus Visit (approximate time: 2 hours)

We are glad you are planning a visit to HWS! The Office of Admissions recommends that prospective students sign up for an information session followed by a campus tour. This is the best introduction to the Hobart and William Smith community and will allow you to hear from admissions counselors as well as current students. Each information session and campus tour typically lasts about 2 hours in total. For seniors and transfer students, we strongly recommend an on-campus interview during your visit.

Diversity in Admissions Program

This program highlights the academic, social, and professional resources available at HWS to students who are traditionally underrepresented within higher education on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender expression, as well those with disabilities and first-generation students.
