Visit Us

We encourage all prospective students to visit us or connect with a CALS Ambassador to learn more about all that CALS has to offer! Below are different types of visits you can take advantage of and get your questions answered. You can register on Visit Bucky for CALS Visit Days and campus-wide visit options offered by the UW-Madison Office of Admissions & Recruitment.

CALS Information Sessions

Information sessions are a great opportunity for prospective high school and transfer students to visit campus and learn more about CALS majors, opportunities, and resources. These sessions include a 45-minute presentation and a 30-minute CALS Tour which are held on a Friday afternoon during the academic year. Summer sessions will only include the 45-minute presentation. You can register for CALS Information Sessions on the Visit Bucky website.
