Magic in the Metroplex

MIM Counselor Inquiry Form

This joint program provides high school and independent college counselors with a chance to experience first-hand the opportunities and cultures of our campuses. North Texas has many exciting possibilities for college students, and we want you to learn more about them throughout the days of Magic in the Metroplex!

Out of precaution, we are not hosting an in-person counselor tour for spring 2021. Instead, we are offering a virtual Deans’ Panel on October 23, 2020 and again on March 4, 2021. Please complete the registration form if you are interested in attending either or both dates.

We hope to resume our fly-in program in the spring of 2022! Any inquiries or registrations received for our virtual Magic in the Metroplex Deans’ Panels will be considered for our next fly-in tour in the spring of 2022.

Please click here and complete the inquiry form if you would like to be considered for our next in-person tour in the spring of 2022. 

Note: Only submissions received prior to October 15, 2021 will be considered for the spring 2022 Magic in the Metroplex tour. Submissions received after October 15, 2021 will be considered for the spring 2023 Magic in the Metroplex tour.
