Upcoming Visit Days

***Note: Iowa Private College Week, Fall Visit Days, and Spring Visit Day are very similar events.  If you have attended one of these events, we suggest you set up an individual visit (and/or other group events that have different content) PLUS attend a scholarship event to broaden your knowledge of Clarke.

Iowa Private College Week
Monday, August 4 – Friday August 8
Iowa Private College Week is the perfect time to visit Clarke University!  You and your parents can explore our campus, visit with professors from any academic major, meet coaches, see our campus on a tour with current students while hearing what it’s like to bleed blue and gold, and learn about all our academic and social opportunities to see if we’re the right fit for you. Visits are scheduled twice each day.  Make sure to plan to include lunch as guests eat for free (our homemade meals are something to surely not miss). For more details and to RSVP, click here.

STEM Day  
Saturday, September 20
At Clarke’s STEM Day, you won’t sit in another classroom listening to a bunch of stuffy faculty talk at you about opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. Instead, you’ll actually work hands on with our professors and top-notch students in biology, chemistry, computer science and math to see first-hand all of the cool things you can do in these fields.
