Wonder what college is like?


Experience the life of a Gies Business student!


The Business Shadow program, which runs on select days in February, March, and April, allows prospective students to attend a class and spend time with one of our Business Student Ambassadors. This is a great opportunity for admitted students to see what a college class is like, to ask questions about academics and campus life, and to meet the Gies family!
