What Happens During Crimson Scholars Day
The day begins at 8:15 a.m. and wraps up about 2:00 p.m.
During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to complete two, small group interviews, which are a great way to meet our faculty and other students who have an interest in Hastings College. Also on this day, we’ll have a professional facilitator to conduct a fun, high energy group leadership activity. Previous scholars have indicated this was a highlight from the day!
Parents and families are welcome to stay on campus and enjoy several hospitality areas. They are also welcome to explore the community of Hastings.
We'll wrap up with a luncheon for family, scholars and faculty, with campus tours available by request.
