Can I talk to a specific academic department?

During a Junior Day visit, you'll be able to explore the academic information fair and hear from department representatives in a group setting. If you're interested in scheduling a longer, one-on-one appointment with a specific academic department, you'll need to select one of our other visit options, such as a Jayhawk Day. Individual academic appointments cannot be scheduled on Junior Day visits.
