Discover MyUSD: Day Visits

Discover MyUSD gives admitted students the opportunity to experience student life at USD by shadowing a current student.


A day visit gives a prospective student the chance to walk the footsteps of a current student for half of a day. A student host will pick up the guest at approximately 8:45 a.m. and take him/her to class, lunch, and around campus. A meal pass for lunch on campus will be provided. There is no fee for a day visit.
