Group Visit Days

Group Visits at Candler are a chance to hear from remarkable faculty and invited guests—and learn more about our degree programs, spiritual formation, community life, scholarships and opportunities for study and growth—other prospective students.

Table Talk

Learn about Candler in conversation over dinner with Dean Jan Love, Admissions staff, an esteemed member of our faculty and other prospective students at Table Talk. These casual dinners begin with a welcome by Dean Love and feature a faculty speaker.

During the general information session afterwards, you will have the opportunity to meet with current students and ask questions of our Admissions representatives. We'll have activities for children during the informational portion of the evening, so bring the whole family!
