Fridays@Fox

If you are unable to attend Bruin Preview, Friday @ Fox is another good visit option. At Friday @ Fox we offer a set schedule with different choices at every hour.

You'll be able to choose from the following activities:

  • Spend the night (Thursday night only)
  • Tour campus
  • Tour campus housing
  • Tour academic department facilities (some departments may be unavailable on Fridays). Here is a departmental tour schedule.
  • Attend classes (choose from a list of 25+ classes)
  • Eat in the dining hall with student hosts. We provide meal tickets for prospective students and one guest. Additional meal tickets can be purchased in our dining hall for $7.40 (lunch). It's a buffet style, all-you-can-eat, lunch!

To set up your Friday @ Fox visit, please let us know at least 24 hours ahead of time. If you plan to stay overnight (ages 16-23 only), notify us two weeks in advance. Space is limited so register early!
