Home > Admissions > Visit Kean > Student for a Day


Participating in Kean’s Student For A Day [SFAD] program will allow you a chance to explore the University by actually becoming a part of our community. Over the time span of a typical day at Kean, you will have the opportunity to be a Kean student and:

  • attend a class
  • meet Kean professors and current students
  • tour our beautiful campus
  • learn more about Admissions and Financial Aid

SFAD program begins at 8:30 a.m. in Downs Hall with a welcome session, where you will be greeted and hosted by current Kean students. A SFAD visit lasts for about five to six hours. 

We understand that selecting a college/university is many times a family decision, so we encourage you to bring your parent(s), guardian(s) or other family member(s) along with you. While you are in class, your guest(s) may attend Parents’ Class, an information session exclusively designed for parents and family.


2015 FALL PROGRAM DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED (SFAD is open to high school juniors and seniors only)


"I gained excellent and above average information in this workshop. This is my first time going through the college process and I am kind of lost.  But today, the information I received will allow me to do what is right for my daughter.  The parent workshop was God sent". - Parent Guest

"I liked that the students were separated from the parents, that doubled the information.  I liked the variety of speakers and the informal, candid nature of the talks.  Also there was a lot of time for Q & A and we needed a lot of time." - Parent Guest

"The Student For a Day program was incredible!  My daughter was very nervous about being able to handle college level work.  Sitting in on an actual class at Kean really helped ease her fears.  She was able to experience the college class setting first hand.  We also enjoyed interacting with current Kean students and seeing the campus in full action that day.  The SFAD program enabled my daughter to experience a day in the life of a Kean student.  She is so excited to begin her journey at Kean.  Thank you again for such a wonderful program." - Parent Guest 

"The class was great!  The Professor was very entertaining and really explained the subject well.  I learned a lot about Geology.  I look forward to going to Kean!" – Student Guest

"What an informative day!  Many of my questions were answered, some I didn’t know I had."  – Student Guest

"The student ambassadors were very polite, respectful and knowledgeable of the students and their questions."  – Student Guest
