Consider registering for our overnight program the Friday before an Open House. Staying overnight with a current student is a wonderful way to make the most of your visit to Christopher Newport. Due to space constraints within the residence halls, the overnight program is only available for current high school seniors. If you have any questions about the overnight program please email overnight@cnu.edu.
