Admissions Potash Hill Days for Accepted Students

Join us on Potash Hill for a day of celebration and exploration on April 8 or April 15, 2013.

You may not be an enrolled student just yet, but we think the best way to experience Marlboro is to actually be a student here for the day. We'll provide you with a sample course schedule for the fall, your roommates (if you're staying overnight) and you will attend an advising hour with a faculty member. Think of Marlboro as your 'home' for the day, and for the next four years!
