Open Houses

Attending an open house--from Junior Visit Day to our Summer Open House--is one of the best ways to start exploring Chatham. You’ll be able to take a tour of our (famous) Shadyside Campus, meet with faculty, and meet your personal admission counselor. You’ll also earn more about scholarships and financial aid, and hear about Chatham’s approaches to student life and career development, as well as our DIII athletics programs. And, of course, lunch. Can’t forget lunch.

Academic Scholarship Days

At Chatham, we’re proud of the financial aid we’re able to offer to students, and scholarship interview days are an important part of making that happen. In addition to the interview (which will take place with faculty in your academic area of interest) you’ll get to have a one-on-one meeting with a financial aid counselor to help answer your questions about about Chatham’s affordability, applying for FAFSA, and other college financing questions.
