Connect with UMSI event for prospective students

UMSI will be hosting two events to help prospective students learn about the school. The event on Thursday, October 24 (held from 5:30-7:30 p.m.) will be a chance to learn about the programs, admissions, funding, and career development in a shorter version of our Saturday event.

The Saturday, October 26 event (1:30-5:00 p.m.) will be a bit more in-depth on each of the above topics, and will allow you a chance to engage with faculty and current students, in addition to hearing from staff throughout the afternoon. Both events will be held in Palmer Commons, just a short walk away from North Quad. Click here for more information and to RSVP.
