Student Experience Day

Home / Admissions / Student Experience Day

Congratulations on your status as a top scholar!

Pairing the massive resources of ASU with the tight-knit community and unique opportunities afforded by the nation's top honors college makes for a one-of-a-kind college experience at Barrett, The Honors College. Student Experience Days are designed to show prospective students (and their families) what this experience looks like. Not only will prospective students take the traditional campus tours, they will also learn about the honors experience and their major via interactions with staff, faculty, and current students throughout the day. These visits are offered to select top scholars by invitation only. Explore the tabs below to learn more about Student Experience Days and to schedule your visit!

Thank you for your interest in visiting Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University. Unfortunately, we have cancelled the Student Experience Day program for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester due to COVID-19. Please visit https://tours.asu.edu to schedule a live, virtual visit experience for both Barrett Honors College and Arizona State University.
