Wonder what college is like?

Experience the life of a Gies Business student!

The Business Shadow program, which runs October through November and February through April (excluding break periods), allows prospective students to attend a class and have a meal with one of our Business Student Ambassadors. This is a great opportunity to see what a college class is like, to ask questions about academics and campus life, and to meet the Gies family!

Sample Itinerary

10:30 a.m.: Arrive at the Business Instructional Facility to chat with an admissions staff member prior to your shadow experience

11 – 11:50 a.m.: Attend class with your Business Student Ambassador

Noon – 1 p.m.: Enjoy lunch and ask questions in a more relaxed setting


Classes are either 50 minutes or 80 minutes in length, and therefore shadow times may vary.


The Fall 2018 Shadow Program is still in the planning stages; students return to campus on August 27, and we will be confirming their schedules and availability then.

Check back here in mid-September; we will post the open dates and times once they are set. We look forward to having you here on campus!
