Be sure to call the college in advance to verify the date and time as some of these dates may change.  Some schools request that you register before coming to an open house. Many schools besides those listed offer open houses.  Call your prospective colleges and universities for their schedule. 
 
It is an excellent idea to include both open houses and college tours in your college exploration.  The open house allows you to see many of the activities available on campus while the traditional college tour lets you experience the college in a more typical environment.
