Open House Overview

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.

Please Note: 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.
