Group Visits

We offer guided tours and presentations with Admissions Counselors for groups that are larger than 5 people. These are available to high school and community college groups that are less than 50 students on select days. 

Select dates available for June, July and August. To schedule a group visit experience, please contact Nathalie Moreira at 925-631-4745 or

Class Visit Experiences

Our Professors care about their students--and even know their names! Sit in a class where you can observe our cutting edge liberal arts curriculum firsthand. Please note that class visits are only available to admitted high school Seniors and Transfer students.

Class visit experiences will resume for Fall 2016 beginning in early August. Please check back then for more information. 

On Campus Interviews

A great way to meet an admissions counselor to talk about your interests and background. Interviews serve two purposes; they let us ask, "why should we choose you?" and they let you ask, "why should I choose Saint Mary's?"
