2. Come visit. Make a visit to campus with your parents. Contact Coach Fink with some anticipated dates.  Coach Fink will confirm availability, which will then allow you the chance to schedule a campus tour and admissions interview through our Admission’s Office at 617-928-4553. Coach Fink and his staff are available throughout the year and are happy to meet with prospects and their families in the cross country office. Please anticipate spending about three hours during a complete visit.

3. Send a video or YouTube clips. Send a highlight tape if you have one of you running in a competitive environment.  We can't get out to see every prospect, but looking at a tape or YouTube clips of you allows us at least something to go on, which may be helpful in evaluating your ability to compete at Mount Ida.

4. See the team play. Check out the schedule and come watch the team compete. Send Coach Fink an email in advance at or call him at 617-928-4731 so either he or his staff can meet you at the end of the meet.

The Process: The men's cross country staff attends races throughout a prospect’s junior and senior years. This allows us to establish a positive relationship and rapport with the prospect as well as his family and evaluate their growth and development as a runner.
