Fridays at Calvin

Fridays at Calvin

Fridays at Calvin is our premier visit program because it gives you an authentic experience of life on campus, with plenty of options to customize to your interests.

Upcoming dates

Visit Calvin in the summer — it’s a great time to tour campus. New Fridays at Calvin dates will be announced mid-summer.
