    Throughout the event, University Campus Admissions will offer a large selection of games, novelties, crafts, music, food trucks, prizes, and the largest giveaways in Saint Leo history. A special VIP reception for the incoming class will provide committed guests the chance to meet future classmates and other Saint Leo families while enjoying a number of special Lions-only perks.
    Attendees will have access to class registration, financial aid meetings, department presentations, housing selection, parking registration, student ID photos, tours, residence hall walk-throughs, and more. Students and their families may also bring transcripts for the final round of Fall 2021 instant admission sessions, complete an on-site application, take placement exams, submit their deposit, and meet with staff from various departments to ensure that all new student steps are completed.
