Iowa Private College Week

Iowa Private College Week is July 31 - August 4, 2017. 

Now's the time to save the date and get registered!

During Iowa Private College Week, Iowa’s 25 private colleges and universities invite students and families to explore our campuses, visit with professors, meet coaches, chat with current students, and learn all about academic and social opportunities Iowa's private colleges offer.

Campus visits are important. Remember, this college research time is all about finding your fit. The best way to learn if a college fits you is to get on the campus and experience it for yourself.

Iowa's 25 private college campuses synchronize schedules so you can tour at least two campuses a day during Iowa Private College Week. When you register, students will be entered into drawings for prizes like Amazon Gift Cards, a GoPro Hero camera, iPad Minis and more.

Graceland will be offering its IPCW sessions on the following days:

  • Monday, July 31 @ 1:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, August 1 @ 9:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday, August 2 @ 9:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, August 3 @ 1:30 p.m.
  • Friday, August 4 @ 9:00 a.m.

Visit Fridays

Graceland University welcomes any prospective students and families to see what the institution has to offer. The day starts at 10 a.m. in Shaw Center and ends at 2 p.m. Some visitors may go later than 2 p.m., depending on whether or not individual appointments have been made with coaches or faculty. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about Graceland from Admissions, interact with faculty and staff, learn about student life from current students, and tour the campus. That is why, here at Graceland, we have designated every Friday "Visit Friday." Sign up for a visit to the Lamoni campus today!
