Admissions Events and Tours

We love having visitors on campus and encourage you to visit New England College a couple of times. We want you to feel what it’s like to attend college in a small, New England town. We want you to attend a sporting or theatrical event, observe a class in session, meet faculty and staff dedicated to the student experience, and informally walk around campus.

Weekday Campus Tours

If you are unable to attend one of our events, we invite you to schedule a campus tour with a Student Ambassador. Tours are given Monday through Friday at 10:30am and 2pm as well as select Saturdays at 10am and 11:30am. Our campus tours are student-led and typically take one hour. The tour highlights various points of interest throughout campus, including academic buildings, athletic facilities, our student center and a first year residence hall. If you have a specific person on campus that you would like to meet (Financial Aid Counselor, Professor, or Coach) during your visit please call us we will try to schedule an appointment for you.

Please call or email to register for a weekday tour at 603.428.2223 or

Pilgrims on the Peak

Spend the day like a New England College student. Join us for a tour Monday through Friday and after your tour you will receive a free lift ticket to ski at Pat’s Peak conveniently located two miles from campus! Accompanying family members are also invited to ski for free! Rentals extra, while supplies last.

Accepted Student’s Day

If you have been accepted to New England College, you and your family are invited to campus to enjoy a day of activities that will help you become more familiar with the New England College community and the many opportunities that await you here. Accepted Student’s Day is a special program designed to offer all the information you need to choose New England College. Even if you previously visited for a tour or other campus event, this day offers unique insights into being a Pilgrim! This is a community experience where many individuals and offices from around campus will be available to answer questions. While at lunch sit and meet your future faculty members and ask them questions about the classes you will be taking. All accepted and deposited students are encouraged to attend.
