Jumbo Days is the best way for admitted students to get to know campus on a deeper level - you'll meet current students, check out available clubs, and have the chance to learn from professors in mock classes. If you can come to one of the open houses on April 14th, 20th and 21st we strongly recommend that you do.
Update: The Jumbo Days event for April 14th is completely full. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any more registrations for that event.

If you have been admitted to the BFA or Combined Degree program with the School of the Musuem of the Fine Arts, we encourage you to attend the Jumbo Day on April 21st. That event will include programming on both our Medford/Somerville and Fenway campuses. You may register for that event by clicking here.
