Want to get to know Dillard better before you apply or accept a spot at our university? We host a number of events on campus throughout the year to help you get to know Dillard better. Our Fall and Spring Preview Weekends draw hundreds of prospective students to campus. In the spring, our Decision Day event continues to be one of the major University-wide events designed just for you. At all of these events, you will have the opportunity to sit in on a class, participate in our activities, take a campus tour, meet current students, alumni, faculty, and staff, and much more. Don’t worry; if you can’t make it to campus, we will bring Dillard to you during our Discover DU days. Browse our upcoming events and contact your Admissions Counselor for more
