Our upcoming virtual open house is unlike any you’ve attended — because it’s personalized to you!

Saturday, January 16, 2021
9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST

We have lots of experiences for you to explore. Chat face to face with members of the MHS community, enjoy an interactive class, visit virtual booths to learn about specific departments and activities, attend student and faculty panels, play games, and more!

The best part is that you decide which of these you want to attend, and when you want to attend them. You can pop in at any point during the day, stay for a few minutes or as long as you want, whatever’s convenient for you. SEE FULL SCHEDULE BELOW.
