Campus Host Program

What is the Campus Host Program?

Campus Host gives you the opportunity to spend 24 hours as a Fredonia student.

Once you register for the date of your choice, we pair you up with a current Fredonia student who is in the major you've been accepted into. During your visit you sit in on classes, eat at the dining halls, and attend various on-campus events.  If you choose to stay overnight, you'll stay in one of the dorms with your host.

Of course, this is all free of charge.


Frequently Asked Questions:

Is it possible for me to receive a music lesson during my stay?
Indeed. Whether or not you've been accepted into the music department, we can arrange for you to meet with a professor to receive a vocal or instrumental lesson.

I haven't auditioned or submitted my portfolio yet.  Is that ok?
Yep.  Perfectly fine.  All you need to be is academically admitted to Fredonia.  Admittance to specific programs like Visual Arts and New Media, Theatre or Music is required.

How can I find out more about financial aid?
If meeting with a financial aid counselor is something you'd be interested in while you're here, let us know beforehand and we can set up an appointment for you.

What can I do to find out more about Fredonia's athletic programs?
Fredonia has many varsity and intramural team sports. While on campus, you'll have the opportunity to visit athletic facilities and meet with current athletes and coaches.


I already know someone that goes to Fredonia, can I visit them while I'm here?
Yes - as long as they are on campus. You will not be permitted to leave the Fredonia campus during your visit. If your friend does not live on campus, you cannot stay with them...however you can always meet up with them at Starbucks or Tim Hortons.

What about food?  What about special dietary needs?
We've got you covered...no charge.  When you arrive on campus you will be given a meal card so you can eat in the dinning halls or at Starbucks or Tim Hortons.  If you have special dietary needs you simply need to communicate them to the staff preparing your meals.  Vegetarian and vegan options are available, as are lactose-free and gluten free options.


Getting to Fredonia:

Please keep in mind that the Campus Host Program does not provide you with transportation to your visit. Here are some options to consider before your visit:

* A parent or guardian may drop you off on the day of your visit and pick you up the day after.
* You may drive yourself and we will provide you with an on-campus parking permit.
* Coach buses may drop you off right on campus. Schedules are available online at www.coachusa.com
* If you choose to fly into the Buffalo airport, you can be brought to campus by Coach bus, taxi, or rental car services.
* Taking the bus to campus?  Let us know and we'll meet you at the bus stop (which is in the middle of campus).
