      Nothing can quite show you what life is like on our campus - you have to live it. And at Transy, we give you that chance! Walk in the shoes of a Pioneer for 24 hours by registering for an overnight visit.

      Overnight visits give high school seniors and juniors the chance to sleep in our beds, eat in our cafeteria, visit our classes and chat with our professors, while also experiencing the visit basics — such as touring campus and meeting with your counselor. It's the most all-inclusive visit we offer to students.

      What to Expect
      The overnight visit experience includes:
      • A free meal the night you arrive,
      • A comfortable overnight stay with an student overnight host in a Tempur-pedic bed,
      • Free breakfast the following morning,
      • A 90-minute walking tour of campus with a student admissions ambassador,
      • A 30-minute admissions session with an admissions counselor, and
      • A class visit

      Many optional activities are also available to add to your visit experience, including meeting with a coach or faculty/staff member. Please visit the M/W/F Class List or the T/Th Class List to view the types of classes available on your selected day. You will visit class the day after your overnight, so make sure you view the appropriate class list.  Not all classes are offered each day at the time you may select.
