Information Session and Campus Tour

If you are a prospective student, an information session with an admissions counselor is the best way for you to learn about the Holy Cross College experience, the application process, and financial aid resources available to you. These sessions are offered most weekdays at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and are followed immediately by a student-led campus tour. When classes are in session, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary meal alongside current students in the Siegfried Dining Hall. If you would like to meet a specific professor or are interested in meeting with representatives from athletics, campus ministry, career development, global perspectives, Notre Dame Marching Band, or ROTC, please let us know before you arrive so that we can do our best to accommodate your request. You can indicate a special meeting request on your visit registration form or by calling us at 574.239.8400.

Information sessions and campus tours are also offered on select Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and on Notre Dame home football game Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. Those who participate in a campus tour on the Friday prior to a Notre Dame home football game or on Saturday morning will receive a complimentary parking pass (valued at $30) for game day parking at Holy Cross College.
