Preview Weekend is an immersive two-day experience where you learn what it’s like to be a TWU student. You’ll meet new friends, eat with faculty members, attend lectures and info sessions, explore financial aid options, stay overnight in dorms and get a taste for the renowned TWU community you’ve heard so much about.
No matter whether you’re coming straight from high school, wrapping up a gap year or planning to transfer in from another institution, Preview Weekend is perfect for you. (P.S. Parents are welcome to come along, too!)
