Campus Visits Are Back: What You Need to Know


We are excited to welcome visitors back to Michigan Ross in a safe and healthy way this year. 

Starting this month, our campus visit days will offer prospective students the opportunity to take a tour of our building, connect with current students, and attend a Q&A session with the Admissions team. In addition, prospective students will have the opportunity to join club events related to their career interests on certain visit dates, such as the Human Capital Club Bootcamp, Tech Day, General Management Conference, Healthcare & Lifesciences Symposium, Marketing Symposium, Taste of Ross, and FitXpo. 

While many students have made the decision to apply to and attend Michigan Ross without being able to visit campus in the past few years, we know you may be considering a lot of factors when weighing your decision whether to visit or not. Below, we wanted to share important information with you to help in your decision making process.

What you need to know about campus visits

Will visiting impact by candidacy?

No. A campus visit does not play into our admission decision. But it can give you a better sense of fit with a school, which should be an important factor in your school selection process. Interacting with students, and seeing the town/city can make a big difference in how you feel about a school. Students often tell us that schools moved up or down on their list after a campus visit. 

Will not visiting count against me?

No, it will not. There are plenty of applicants who never visit Michigan Ross and are successful in the admissions process. That said, nearly all of the students we admit connect with our community during the application process through our student ambassadors, regional events, and/or our many virtual events and webinars

How can I get the most out of my campus visit?

Here are a few of our top tips:

  1. Identify people you would like to meet ahead of time (e.g., student ambassadors, professional/career-related clubs, affinity clubs, and Ross centers and institutes) and schedule a brief meeting.
  2. Schedule your visit around events of interest (e.g., student conferences, Ross club events, social events, or sporting events).
  3. Leave time to explore Ann Arbor and do something you find enjoyable. (e.g., explore restaurants —​ Zingerman’s, Frita Batidos, and Black Pearl are a few local faves; go for a run in Nichols Arboretum; check out live jazz at Blue Llama or folk music at The Ark, or upcoming performances at Hill Auditorium).
