Our shadow visits are events led by current students (our Marquette experts) where you experience first-hand academic and social life on campus. You will attend classes, eat in a dining hall, and live a day in the life of a Marquette student.  

The spring term offers a variety of day-long and overnight shadow visit options. Shadow vists will be offered February 10, 16, 19-20, 22, 26-27, March 23, 26-27, 31 and April 4, 9-10, 20, 23-24, 28. Shadow host availability will be updated at the end of January when students return to campus.

Register online for a shadow visit.

After you register, you will receive a confirmation email that will have more details including parking information. Note that overnight visits require a permission slip that must be submitted one week before the visit. For additional questions, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 414.288.7302. 

Please note that Spring Shadow Visits are reserved for students who have admitted to Marquette University and will close two week prior to the event.
