Be a Bulldog Day

A "real life" Boyce experience

Check back soon for Fall 2024 dates!




Spend the day as a current student

Be a Bulldog Day is a unique campus visit, ideal for high school juniors, seniors or transfer students who have already attended a Preview Day or Campus Visit, that gives prospective students the chance to experience life at Boyce first hand. You will have the chance to sit in on a class, tour campus, and spend extensive time with current students.

Learn here, live here

You will get an insider’s view of campus housing as students volunteer their homes for you to stay in Friday night. Lodging for prospective student families will be provided at a nearby hotel on Friday night.

Join us

We are happy to provide the Be a Bulldog experience for our students which includes meals and lodging without a registration fee. When you register for your visit be sure to indicate any guests who may be attending the day with you.

Who can attend Be a Bulldog Day?

Be a Bulldog Day is limited to high school juniors, seniors, and transfer students considering Boyce College.

What should I bring?

Be sure to pack bedding (sleeping bag, pillow, etc.) and toiletries for your stay in the residence hall.  Parents/guests who are staying in the hotel do not need to bring these items. Students under 18 are also required to bring this signed Liability Release Form.

Who will I stay with in the dorms?

The Admissions Office works in conjunction with Student Life in identifying current students to host Be a Bulldog Day visitors. These hosts will take you “out on the town,” take you to dinner, and host you overnight in their dorm room.

Can my family attend the day with me?

Absolutely. We love hosting prospective students and their family members. However the class visit, “out on the town,” dinner, and student life events are reserved for prospective students. While students will spend the night in the dorms, parents and family members will be provided hotel lodging.

When will I rejoin my parents?

Saturday morning during our Donut and Coffee send-off.
