Admitted Student Day

Welcome to your Virtual Admitted Student Day at Beacon College. This day is all about YOU and is designed for you to choose the virtual sessions that align with your academic and student life interests.

Each session is interactive and is hosted by our expert faculty and staff across notable areas of campus, to help you get to know Beacon College even if you haven’t yet been able to visit in person.

Below you’ll find an agenda and a more detailed description of each session so you can plan your day. Each session will have its own unique Zoom link, which you will receive after completing the RSVP form on this page. There is plenty of time between each session for you to get up, stretch your legs, grab a snack, and find the link to your next event!
