Every year, Doane University opens its campus doors to prospective students and their families. With events like Music Day, Future Teacher Day, and Theatre Day, potential students get to learn what makes Doane special. You’ll be able to meet with faculty and students, tour our beautiful campus, sit in on classes, and meet with an admissions counselor. Our Tiger Sleepovers gives you a chance to live the life of a Doane Tiger. Spend a night in our residence halls, and attend classes the next morning to get a real sense of the Doane difference.
