Event Schedule

Virtual Open House is offered in three sessions for you to choose your own Holy Cross experience: Morning - Midday - Afternoon. 

You can join for as many sessions as you'd like for as long as you'd like throughout the day. All our virtual doors are open - you're encouraged to move freely around the sessions.

The morning and afternoon sessions are identical featuring student panel discussions and academic department virtual rooms.

The midday session features special interest program virtual rooms, athletics, and performing arts.  

Throughout the day, our student ambassadors will be on Facebook and Instagram Live. Don't miss them!
