​​Admitted Students Weekend 2024

Welcome to Admitted Students Weekend 2024, a one-of-a-kind way to discover the incredible opportunities and community available to you as a member of the Brown School’s Fall 2024 cohort.

On Friday, April 12 you can participate in several live virtual sessions and on Saturday, April 13, we invite you to join us in person for a day of programming on our beautiful St. Louis campus or online for select live-streamed events.  You’ll hear from faculty, chat with current students, attend a sample class, make valuable connections at our resource fair, and learn more about what makes the Brown School the community all that it is.  And if you are joining us in person, we hope you will take some time to experience our beautiful city of St. Louis and all it has to offer.  See the full schedule of events and additional things to do around town below.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
