Get Facebook Friendly

Join your Cohort’s Facebook Group

Here’s a perk we think you’ll enjoy: your incoming class cohort has a private Facebook group where you can get to know future classmates – or potential roommates – long before classes start. It may not be as exclusive as a secret society, but it’s the perfect way to meet your peers and build some momentum. How do you get in? It’s easy – your admissions counselor will provide your invitation to join the group.
