Academic Open Houses
Come spend a day with us and learn about all of the incredible opportunities waiting for you at James Madison University.
The following is a tentative outline of the Academic Open House. Upon check-in at JMU's Festival Conference & Student Center, families will be given a detailed program & campus map with exact times and locations of Open House events. Please make sure to check-in from 8 - 9am because Open House programming begins promptly at 9am.
This event is designed to be flexible to the needs of our visitors, so there is no "set schedule" that must be followed - students and their families are encouraged to explore campus and various areas of interest at their leisure throughout the day.
