Shadow Days

Do you wonder what it is like to be an Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering student? Or what a university engineering class is like? Current high school juniors or seniors, and prospective transfer students, can participate in our Shadow Days program, where we can arrange for you to sit in on an engineering class and shadow one of our Fulton Ambassadors through part of their day.
