Tour the campus, meet the faculty, eat in the Dining Complex, cheer at a sporting event, bring your instrument and play along with the band or orchestra, and spend a night in a dorm with our students. Here’s what to expect when you come visit Maranatha:
Make a Reservation
Call the Welcome Center at 920-206-2370 or make an online reservation at least 10 days before you come. Tell us your name, address, phone number, approximate number of people visiting, and the dates you would like to visit.
The Welcome Center is located just inside the Dining Complex. Meet some friendly people and receive a welcome packet and dorm assignment. (Plan to arrive before 9 p.m. After 10 p.m., security staff will help you out.)
Prospective students 9th grade and above can stay in the residence halls for two nights free, and those who spend the night will receive up to three free meals while they are on campus. The residence halls are closed to prospective students on Saturday and Sunday nights, and prospective students should arrive before 1 p.m. on Friday. Remember to bring bedding, towels, and toiletries!
On weekdays, meals are served from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m., except during chapel. If you’re not spending the night in the dorms, remember to purchase meal tickets at the Welcome Center desk in the Dining Complex. Child rates are available for ages 3-9 and may be purchased only in the Dining Complex. If you come for the day, you and your parents get a free lunch.
Stuff to Do
While you’re on campus, check out some classes and join the student body for chapel (every day except Wednesday ) in the gym at 9:20 a.m. On Wednesdays, you’ll enjoy visiting a dorm society meeting. You may also want to attend an athletic or fine arts event.
What to Wear
Maranatha requests but does not require that visiting men wear slacks and collared shirts for classes and chapel; casual slacks or jeans, collared shirts, sweaters, or sweatshirts are fine for after classes. Maranatha requests but does not require that visiting women wear dresses or skirts (at least knee-length) for classes and chapel. In the evenings, skirts or loose-fitting pants are fine.
The Welcome Center can arrange appointments with faculty advisors or coaches, as well as campus tours either 10:05 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
