Come hang out with SCCO Student Ambassadors! We created this event to let you walk in our shoes so you can get an idea of what it's like to be an optometry student at MBKU. We'll have campus tours, hands-on demos, teach you some basic skills you can use during vision screenings, plus have games, snacks and plenty of time to chat and answer any questions you have for us! Admissions Officers will be here as well to help address any questions about applying. 

Whether you're still exploring optometry, are applying soon, or have already been admitted to our incoming class, this event is for you!
