Visitor Events

Because of increasing concerns related to COVID-19, Harding University is suspending campus classroom course delivery and moving to online coursework delivery until further notice. Our hope is to be able to resume on-campus delivery within the next few weeks. 
During the time on-campus course delivery is suspended, we will postpone individual and campus visit events and are working on alternative ways to deliver campus previews to prospective students. One of our more disappointing notifications is that Spring Sing 2020 is being postponed and will be rescheduled once on-campus classes resume. For more information, visit
We regret any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. We will update you with more information regarding campus visits as soon as it is available. Please be in prayer for all affected by this global health situation and for conditions to improve worldwide. 

Visiting campus is the best way to experience what life is like as a Harding student. A typical visit includes speaking with your admissions advisor, going to a class of your choice and taking a tour.

Contact your admissions advisor to set up a personalized visit day, or sign up for one of our pre-organized days below.

Once a student is accepted for admission, they will need to attend one of the three Bison Bound sessions. At Bison Bound, future students will register for classes, get their IDs, parking passes, and take care of other necessary registration steps. Who knows, they might even meet their future roommate!

A few days before fall classes begin, accepted students will attend Impact -  Harding's new student orientation. Students will move into their dorms, meet other students, and begin their journey at Harding with a weekend of fun!
