Thank you for your interest in the University of New Haven, and congratulations if you are a newly accepted student to the University of New Haven! We invite you and your family to join us at a hotel near you for light refreshments and a presentation about the many reasons the University of New Haven is the best place for you. You will hear from faculty, staff, and alumni in addition to meeting with other students from your area. Refreshments will be served promptly at 6:30 p.m., and the event will last approximately two hours. Each student will be allowed to bring up to two guests with them to the event.
