Campus Map 

The MANE Event is the largest event of the year, and the last opportunity for undergraduate students to fully experience Saint Leo while completing new student steps in person before the Fall Semester. This is also the final opportunity for students to earn the maximum of $500 in 2022-2023 microscholarships for attending a campus event leading up to the fall. Please see below for additional details.

For committed students, The MANE Event will offer the opportunity to complete any outstanding New Students Checklist items while enjoying a day of food, fun, and sun with fellow incoming classmates. For students who are still making their college decision, this will be the last large-scale opportunity for instant admission and securing their spot at Saint Leo on-site.

SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: Students who missed our Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 Open House or Admitted Students Day events may earn up to $500 in event microscholarships for the 2022-2023 academic year by attending The MANE Event and taking next steps. Students must have submitted their Fall 2022 University Campus enrollment deposit by 11:59 pm ET on Sunday, June 26, to qualify for this event’s microscholarship. Students who previously attended both Open House and Admitted Students Day will not qualify for additional microscholarship funds as they have already earned the maximum of $500 in event microscholarships. However, they will still be eligible to win any giveaways or prizes raffled during the event.

Event programming will include (but will not be limited to) class registration, financial aid meetings, department presentations, housing selection, parking registration, student ID photos, tours, residence hall walk-throughs, and more! Students and their families will also have the opportunity to bring transcripts for our final round of Fall 2022 instant admission sessions, complete an on-site application, take placement exams, submit their deposit, and meet with staff from various departments to ensure that all new student steps are completed. Students will leave with checklists completed, stress depleted, and will be ready to walk into their classes worry-free.

Throughout the event, University Campus Admissions will offer a large selection of food trucks, prizes, music, exciting giveaways, and more. A special VIP reception for our incoming class will provide committed guests with the chance to meet future classmates and other Saint Leo families while enjoying a number of special Lions-only perks.

Please note: The health and safety of our community remain our top priority. All guests who are visiting the University are encouraged to review the newly-released Stage 4 Framework for Supporting the Pride regarding the safety protocols that remain in place at Saint Leo. Please also note that the use of masks is highly encouraged for all individuals while indoors during their time at Saint Leo, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

Anyone who is experiencing a cough, fever, has recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or has tested positive for COVID-19 will not be permitted to visit campus. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you do not visit campus until at least 10 days have passed and you are free of all symptoms.
