Washington College

Admitted Students Day IS APRIL 7!

Admitted Students Day is a day to celebrate YOU. Whether you’re already enrolled in the Class of 2022 or you’re taking your time to decide, we can’t wait to meet you on campus for a full day of getting familiar with all our amazing student opportunities, meeting up and chilling out with your potential future classmates, and exploring our campus and Chestertown. Plus, we’ve got tons of surprises planned to make your day with us even more amazing (can anyone say party?). 

Of course, you’ll still have plenty of opportunities to get all your questions answered, whether it’s quizzing a current student or finalizing details with financial aid, but Admitted Students Day is way more than just an info session. It’s a chance to see everything Washington College has to offer, find out what makes us awesome, and just have fun.

This event is intended for Class of 2022 admitted and enrolled students only.
