The day will include opportunities to have candid conversations with current students, to tour Bennington’s campus, and to meet other students admitted for the Class of 2028 and transferring to Bennington. Above all, this day offers a chance to see, in real time, how Bennington students discover and set a course for a most remarkable life’s work.
