Campus Visits


Visit us in Denver

We offer on-site visits in the Fall every year.  This is the best time of the year to meet students currently in the program and set up a personal appointment with the Kivu Gap Year Director, Luke Parrott.  We are also available to meet outside of the Fall; however, the schedule varies depending upon the international travel demands of our staff.

The best time to visit is between October 1st and the first week of November.  Please arrange for your visit by contacting luke@kivugapyear.com.  Please no visits during our Parents Weekend, October 16-18th as our staff will be busy hosting the weekend for current students and their parents.

The most common schedule is as follows.  However, we are happy to accommodate your schedule.
