USD's Academic Open House - Multi Days | Monday, 03. August 2020

You are invited to USD's Academic Open House 2020

About this Event

Welcome Toreros! As a new USD student, you likely have a bunch of questions: What will my first day of class look like? What can I major and minor in? What type of research is available? What additional activities are available to enhance my experience... We put together a week-long virtual program to answer all of these questions and get you connected to your new Torero community.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The week kicks off on Monday, August 3, with an afternoon of events that cover general academic opportunities like college classroom expectations, international experiences and Changemaker programs.
