This half-day visit is designed for high school juniors, seniors, admitted and wait-listed students and offers you a chance to shadow a current Vanderbilt student. You will meet your Vanderbilt host at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 1:00 p.m. CST and eat lunch together at an on-campus eatery (lunch included). With your host, you will attend a class and spend time together exploring campus. Your visit will conclude at 4:00 p.m.
Registration is required. 'Dore for a Day is available Monday through Friday from mid-September to mid-November and from January to mid-April.
For the spring semester, ‘Dore for a Day will be offered January 17 – March 31 except on the following days:
March 31 – April 17 is reserved for admitted and waitlisted students only.
Please note, as part of the program you will attend your host’s afternoon class. If the host does not have an afternoon class then you may choose a class to visit as long as it is offered between 1 and 4 p.m. If you would like to visit a class other than your host's or that meets outside of 1 to 4 p.m., you must arrange this visit outside of the 'Dore for a Day program. Although we try our best to match you with a host in your area of academic interest, we cannot guarantee this due to host availability. Upon registering, you will be prompted to complete an academic interest survey. This information will help in our matching process.
Please be advised that you should register only one person (the student) for 'Dore for a Day. The program is not designed to accommodate other family members. Parents and siblings may register for a daily information session and campus tour if sessions are available.
Please email or call (800.288.0432) the 'Dore for a Day team if your plans change and you can't attend, or if you're running late. Host students are only able to wait 10 minutes past the program start time due to class restraints.
