One-hour opportunities for prospective students to discover what the General Theological Seminary and the City of New York have to offer.

Students of Color Vocations Day:
The Students of Color Association (SOCA) at General Seminary invites Christians of all denominations, lay or ordained, to attend our sixth annual Vocations Day in April 2014. Begun in 2005, SOCA's Vocations Days have drawn hundreds of participants. The event focuses on how people of color within the Episcopal Church and other Christian denominations can discern and realize their call to ministry, lay or ordained. Specially qualified presenters, Q&A sessions, worship, and a tour of the Seminary's beautiful campus are all part of the popular event.
Prospective Students interested in visiting GTS at times other than those outlined above should complete our Schedule A Vist form. Feel free to request a tour of the campus, worship with us in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, dine with us in the Refectory, and sit in on a class. Guests who have submitted an application are encouraged to schedule faculty and admission interviews.
