Iowa Private College Week

Come check out Briar Cliff this summer, during Iowa Private College Week, Aug. 3-7!



Visiting campus in person is the best way to get a real feel for a university. Come see us during IPCW, and we'll hook you up with a free Briar Cliff T-Shirt — plus, we'll enter you into a drawing to win $500 for textbooks at the BCU boosktore!

You'll have the chance to tour our scenic campus, explore our academic programs, discuss financial aid and meet with professors, coaches and students.

Tours are scheduled twice each day, at either 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
