Step foot on one of the country’s most picturesque campuses, get a feel for the Flagship classroom environment, talk to students who were in your shoes just months ago, and find out for yourself how Chinese Flagship fits in to a combination of specialized programs that fully prepare you for the job market.

Students are encouraged, though not required, to visit campus, sit in class(es), and meet with Flagship faculty, staff, and students. In most cases, the best time to visit is  8am, 10am, or 11am, Mon.-Fri, except on exam days (see table below).

If you are attending a campus event on a weekend, we encourage you to come a day early or stay a day late in order to sit in class and interact with Flagship students.  There is no substitute to observing a classroom and getting a feel for the program’s culture.  It is quite distinct from a traditional language class.

We also encourage you to arrange to visit any other special programs you might be interested in.  Many of them will give tours, allow you to meet with team members, and give you a tour of their facilities.

It is recommended that students visit early to enhance their chances of acceptance; however, students can and may also choose to visit in early spring after being accepted.

 

Note:  If you have applied and have a significant background in Chinese, you may want to plan a visit around our placement interview time window.  Many of our new students have little or no background and complete our June-July domestic summer program. Some skip the summer and begin in the fall, while still others start college by joining our rising sophomores at our Taiwan summer program. A placement interview will be conducted shortly after selections are complete, usually in February.  These can be done remotely, but some students choose to do them in person in conjunction with a campus visit.
