First Tuesday logoA visit to campus is one of the best ways to get a sense of a school’s community and rhythms of life, so Candler offers prospective students many opportunities to do just that. One of the most popular draws is First Tuesday at Candler, a gathering on the first Tuesday of each month.

First Tuesday includes a casual dinner with Dean Jan Love, a short lecture by one of Candler’s distinguished faculty members, and an information session with current students and admissions advisors. Family members are welcome, and activities for children are provided during the information sessions.
