Meadville Lombard Theological School welcomes you to visit us, whether you are considering applying, or have applied, to the school, want to learn more about Unitarian Universalist history, or wish to learn more about the importance and distinction of a Unitarian Universalist seminary. 

Visit During Intensive Classes
We encourage you to visit us in January, April, and July during our weeklong intensive classes when our students are in Chicago. During those periods, you may take a class to get a sense of what our classes are like, and also to gain a better understanding of how our students build community through these intensive classes and while away from Meadville Lombard. During your visit, you can also see what's happening at Meadville Lombard. 

Please contact Ken McHugh, VP of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, or Darrick Jackson, Director of Contextual Ministry, for more information or to make an arrangement for your visit.
