It is our pleasure to offer you an opportunity to Visit Shimer College on Monday, October 9 for our Columbus Day Open House.
You want to know about us, and this is your opportunity to:
• Sit in on a class and see what happens when students are fully engaged in what's going on
• Participate in a seminar and experience an academic setting where your ideas and opinions are valued
• Talk to students who will be happy to share with you what it feels like to learn how to think, not what to think.
If you're interested in attending, please let us know about you here. Download an application here and bring it along with the requested letter of recommendation and transcripts (in sealed envelopes), and writing samples; you will receive an admission decision by October 20!
If you are visiting from a distance, we will be in touch with information about hotels in the area.
