The creativity, teamwork, fellowship and scholarship that define the Kellogg culture are plainly visible in every inch of the school.

Each visitor is required to stop by our Office of Admissions to sign in and receive a Kellogg visitor’s pin, which must be worn at all times during the visit.
During your visit, you can meet and interact with students in a variety of ways. It is best to visit when classes are in session in order to experience the dynamic nature of the Kellogg School of Management and its student body.
If you wish to visit a class please arrive at the Office of Admissions at least 20 minutes prior to the start time of the class that you will be attending. The class schedule reflects the courses currently available for prospective students to visit; it is, however, subject to change on short notice. Please check the availability of classes upon your arrival at the Office of Admissions.
Due to the limited number of seats in each classroom, we cannot guarantee that all guests will be able to attend their top-choice class. No registration is required prior to arrival on campus, but you must depart for your class visit from the Office of Admissions. In some classes, you’ll find student hosts who can give you more information about the professor and the class. Classes with hosts will be identified on a schedule available in the Office of Admissions.
Classes are 90 minutes long. Visitors are required to stay the entire length of the class and are asked not to participate in discussion. Visitors should arrive in Admissions 20 minutes before the start of class. Lunches
Have lunch with current Kellogg students and get a feel for what life at Kellogg is like both in and out of the classroom. The cost of lunch is the responsibility of the prospective student. Meet in the Admissions Office by 12:00 p.m. on the day of a scheduled lunch. Lunches will resume in January
