CUB FOR A DAY
Learn some French or slingshot balloons to learn about velocity—there's no telling what you might do when you attend classes with a current freshman. As a "Cub for a Day," the only guarantees are fun and excitement!
At the end of the day, students will interview with an admissions officer.
Transfer students may be a Cub for a Day February through April. Please call the Admissions Office after January 24 to schedule.

On Nov. 22, 23, and 24, the Visitation Masqueraders will put on the fall play “Letters to Sala,” by Arlene Hutton, based on the book “Sala’s Gift” by Ann Kirschner. The play tells the story of Ann’s discovery of her mother Sala’s secret letters from Nazi labor camps during the Holocaust. Ann discovers a heritage she did not know she had, and Sala relives her experiences in the camps through the letters.
Although school was not in session on Monday, the Astronomy Club took time to visit campus together to view the Mercury Transit. They also ate brunch and listened to a curated soundtrack (including, of course, “Here Comes the Sun,” by the Beatles).
Luke O'Connell, religion faculty at Visitation and lecturer at Georgetown University, presented his work on St. John Henry Newman and the definition of friendship at the 20th annual fall conference of the University of Notre Dame last weekend. The conference theme was: "I Have Called You Friends."
"As a teacher I take seriously the obligation grow in knowledge for my students," said O'Connell. "Georgetown Visitation is a community that gives generously of its time and resources to allow its teachers to pursue excellence in our vocation."
