Time to Visit Bard

This is one of the best times to visit Bard. Students are back on campus and the weather is beautiful. You can view our late-summer and fall-semester campus tour schedule online and schedule a time to visit. We have scheduled Discovery Day for Columbus Day, Monday, October 12, when many of you are off from school. Discovery Day consists of expanded information sessions where the admission staff speak about our truly unique, multidisciplinary curriculum; study abroad; civic engagement and internship opportunities; and so much more. The 30-minute information sessions will be followed by 60-minute student-led tours.
