The Divinity School's Fall Open House for Prospective Students
The Divinity School's annual Fall Open House for Prospective Students will take place on Thursday, October 8, 2015. Recognizing that the best way to get a sense of the vibrancy, diversity, and rigor of the School's ongoing conversation about religion is to see what it is like on the ground, we invite prospective students to come join in for a day of exploration. Participants will have the opportunity to sit in on Autumn Quarter classes, interact with faculty and current students in a variety of venues, and attend sessions and panels on the Divinity School's degree programs, areas of study, application procedures, and community life.

Date: Thursday, October 8, 2015
Time: 8:15a - 8:00p
Location: The University of Chicago Divinity School, Swift Hall, Chicago, IL
