Overnight Shadow Visits

Overnight Shadow Visits are a great opportunity to experience life as a boarding student in addition to a traditional day of shadowing a student for classes. Prospective students will arrive at 5:30 p.m. CT the night before they are scheduled for a shadow day, meet one of our current boarding students, and spend the evening hours experiencing dinner at the Moore House, Residential Life Hour, Study Hall, and Quiet Hours learning about what it’s like to be a boarder at La Lu.

Upcoming Overnight Shadow Visits:

Mon-Tues, October 22-23 | 5:30 p.m. (22nd) - 3:10 p.m. (23rd) Central Time
Mon-Tues, November 12-13 | 5:30 p.m. (12th) - 3:10 p.m. (13th) Central Time

Please contact Meg Stiphany, Director of Enrollment Management, at or by calling (219) 326-7450 to reserve a spot for an Overnight Shadow Visit.
