Joining the Circle is an intimate program geared toward fostering diversity for traditionally underrepresented admitted students including first-generation college students and their families. The program is designed to help admitted students decide if UVM is the right match by offering a day on campus. Students who decide to enroll will also spend two days on campus for orientation in June.

Joining the Circle is held in conjunction with the Admitted Student Visit Day on the following day. Joining the Circle participants generally attend the Admitted Student Visit Day as well.
