Visit the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities

It's all about finding the right fit, and visiting campus is the best way to see what life is like in the RCAH.

Future students and their families are encouraged to schedule a visit to the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities anytime during the year. There are several ways to visit us, and whether you want to attend a group visit day or schedule an individual visit, our Recruitment Coordinator will take the time to accommodate all of your needs.

Preview Days

These introductory visit days will guide you through the basics of the RCAH degree program while answering specific questions that students and families may have during the application process. They also provide a glimpse of what life is like every day in Snyder-Phillips Hall. You will have the opportunity to hear from current students and faculty, tour the facilities, and eat lunch in our dining hall, The Gallery.

Fall 2015 (High School Seniors)

Register here for Preview Day on Saturday, October 10, 2015

Future Fridays (Small Group Visits)

Sign up for one of our RCAH Future Fridays on October 2, 16, and 30. These small group information sessions immediately follow the daily campus tour and presentation offered by the Office of Admissions, and will begin at 3 p.m. During the program, students will have the opportunity to learn more about the RCAH degree from an advisor, speak with current students and faculty, and tour the college facilities.

Individual Visits

Individual visits are catered to each student's special interests. Whether that includes sitting in on a class, eating lunch in the dining hall, or meeting with an individual faculty member, it is a great opportunity to gain a more in depth look at the RCAH. Future students and families interested in setting up an individual visit will meet with the Recruitment Coordinator or another member of the Student Affairs staff, and are encouraged to call the main office at (517) 355-0210 to schedule a visit.

New Students Day

What makes New Students Day different than the other visit days? This is your chance to share insider tips on life in the RCAH with current students, meet your future classmates and roommates, chat with the Dean, and meet the faculty that will be teaching your courses in the fall.

The 2016 New Students Day will take place on Saturday, March 19, 2016. Students must be admitted to Michigan State University in order to attend.

Future Spartans 

Future Spartans offers high school sophomores and juniors a special opportunity to hear presentations and meet representatives from MSU's three residential colleges--James Madison College, Lyman Briggs College, and the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities. These programs typically occur in late Spring and have been hosted in the greater Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo ares.

College Fairs & High School Visits

Can't make it to campus for a visit? Let us come to you! Representatives from the RCAH travel with the MSU Admissions Counselors as they visit high schools and college fairs through the mid-west and around the country.
