Approximately 1,000 prospective students and their families are expected to visit the Western Carolina University campus Saturday, Nov. 19, as the university holds its fall semester Open House.
Hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Admission, Open House gives visitors a chance to tour the campus, learn about the university’s wide array of award-winning academic programs, and find out the important details of topics such as financial aid.
The day’s activities will begin with an information fair from 8:15 to 10 a.m. on the concourse of WCU’s Ramsey Regional Activity Center. Following a welcome session in the main arena of the Ramsey Center from 10 to 10:30 a.m., prospective students will have a chance to engage in academic sessions led by WCU faculty members from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m.
Afternoon activities will include general tours of campus and more focused tours of the Campus Recreation Center and residence halls. A variety of information sessions about topics such as paying for college, service learning and the Honors College will be available from noon until 2:30 p.m.
Spring semester Open House events are planned for two Saturdays in early 2017 – Feb. 25 and March 25.
