So, what can you do now? Here are few initial steps to becoming a Forester:

  1. Visit campus! 
    Campus looks different after you’ve been admitted. Visiting campus is a critical step in finalizing your college decision, and we are excited to share our admitted student reimbursement visit program for out-of-state first-year students where we will subsidize up to $500 in travel expenses. You can learn more about our Future Forester Visit Program here.
  2. Connect with your admissions counselor. 
    The friendly faces in Patterson Lodge know you from the application process and are happy to help answer your questions and connect you with other members of the campus community.     
  3. Contact the Office of Financial Aid.
    Connect with our staff if you have questions regarding merit scholarships, need-based aid, or other concerns related to the cost of attendance.
  4. Chat with a current student.
