Admission Events and Tours
We love to welcome guests to campus and encourage you to visit New England College more than once! Come feel what it’s like to be a part of a college community in a small, picturesque New England town. Attend a sporting or theatrical event, observe a class in session (during the academic year), meet faculty and staff dedicated to the student experience, and tour our campus.
Accepted Student Days
Congratulations on your acceptance to NEC! We invite you and your family to enjoy a day of activities that will help you become more familiar with the New England College community and all the opportunities that await you here. Already visited? Well, come on back! This day offers unique insights into being a Pilgrim – it’s a community experience where faculty, students, and staff from lots of offices around campus will be available to answer questions. All accepted and deposited students and their families are encouraged to attend!
Come meet our Director of Admission and other students considering NEC. Our admission counselors, faculty and staff will present important information every prospective Pilgrim should know. The presentation will be followed by a campus tour. There are morning and afternoon sessions available on for all Holiday Visits. Please select the time that works best for you and your family.
Campus Weekday Tours
Individual campus visits are a great way to learn more about NEC. Campus tours are led by a student ambassador Monday through Friday at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. We also have tours on selected Saturdays during the academic year.
Our campus tours last about one hour and highlight various points of interest throughout campus, including academic buildings, athletic facilities, our student center and a first year residence hall. During your visit, you can also meet with an admission counselor, financial aid counselor, support services staff or one of our coaches. Select the options that work best for you and your family when you register.

Accompanying family members are also invited to ski/snowboard for free! Rentals extra, while supplies last. Sign up for a Campus Visit here and select Pilgrims on the Peak.
Interested in bringing a group of students to campus? We are happy to arrange a program for you. Your students will tour campus with one of our Student Ambassadors and have a “Get to Know NEC” presentation. We do ask for group visits to be scheduled two weeks in advance of your preferred weekday date, so that we can provide your students with the best possible visit experience. To register for a group visit please complete our online registration form and our Campus Visit Coordinator will be in touch with you shortly with confirmation.
