Open House Campus Visitation Programs
Expect a Great Day!
Open house programs are a great way to find out all that the SHIP EXPERIENCE has to offer. You'll have the opportunity to find out how SHIP can be just as individual as you are by talking with current students, faculty members, academic Deans, distinguished Alumni or even by attending an academic session. Come to our next open house by registering below.

This session will provide you with the opportunity to hear from Departmental faculty members who will be teaching your classes.
