The Mesa Experience visitation program gives future students and their families a comprehensive opportunity to visit Colorado Mesa University in person. This in-depth, one-day event allows you to attend an academic and club fair, tour the campus, meet and talk with current students and enjoy lunch served by our dining service provider. You'll hear about admissions, housing and financial aid.
Optional pre-event breakout sessions include topics such as first-generation student success, transferring credits, adult students and next steps for admitted students.

If you have questions regarding the event or registration, please contact Melissa Tolson at 970.248.1693 or [email protected].

The Spring 2023 Mesa Experience dates are February 25, March 11, March 13 and April 15.
