Come one, come all. See the Bentley trademarks at their finest, including the state of the art library and trade room.
Tours are offered weekdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and selected Saturday mornings. Tours usually last for about one hour to an hour and a half and can be scheduled on the same day as an interview, provided there is room in the schedule. If you would like to see the Dana Athletic Center, you can make a request to have it included in your tour or join one of the special tours that leave at noon and always include the center.
Tours are given by actual Bentley students, so you will have the chance to ask any burning questions about what the school is actually like.
Spending the night on campus can be arranged on an individual basis by speaking with the Admissions Office. You will be paired with a current student and spend a day in their shoes. You might go to a few Bentley classes, chill on the Greenspace, grab some dinner in the caf, and then stay up past midnight hanging out in the dorms. If an overnight visit if possible, it can be a great way to see the campus from a different perspective than simply a tour and information session.
