Mesa Experience

Come and stay the day! The Mesa Experience Visitation Programs are day long campus visit opportunities lasting from 9:00am-3:00pm. These comprehensive, one-day visitation programs allow you to tour the campus, meet and talk with current students and professors, and enjoy lunch served by our dining service provider. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions addressing such topics as financial aid, housing, admissions, and student life. 

Event admission is free for prospective students. Additional guests such as parents, siblings, grandparents, etc. cost $15 per person. This cost includes program materials, giveaways and lunch catered by our award winning dining service.
