Visiting FAQ

  • What will I do on my visit?

    Your visit—including a tour and an interview—will take roughly two hours. When you first arrive, a current student will take you on a tour of campus. When you return, you will interview with a member of the Admission staff. The interview is a great time for us to get to know you and for you to ask us questions about Williston. After that, your parents will also meet with a member of the Admission staff. If there is anyone else you’d like to meet with when you visit (for example, a coach or teacher of a specific subject), please let us know when you book your visit, and we will try to schedule time for it, depending on the teacher or coach’s schedule that day.

  • What should I wear on my visit? Do I need to bring anything with me?

    There is no strict dress code for visiting Williston. While you might want to dress up a bit (i.e., don’t come in sweats and a t-shirt!), you should wear what makes you comfortable. There is no need to bring anything special with you other than a mental list of the questions you want answered on your visit.
