DFC Group Visits

DFC Group Visits are a great way to introduce a group of high school juniors and/or seniors to the Dougherty Family College. Group Visits are hosted on our Minneapolis campus on select days during the academic year. Group Visits are subject to availability, and we are unable to accommodate group visits for freshmen, sophomores or middle school students.
