Edinboro University’s Open House welcomes prospective students, families to autumnal rite09/26/2011
EDINBORO, Pa. – While many associate the autumn season with the changing colors of leaves and football kick-offs, others are focusing on making important decisions about their futures, such as which college to attend.
Edinboro University this weekend will help many with those decisions with its own autumnal tradition on Saturday, October 1 – the annual Fall Open House.
The Open House is a wonderful opportunity for high school juniors and seniors and their families, along with adult, transfer and potential graduate students to learn more about all Edinboro University has to offer. Throughout the event, all visitors are welcome to tour the 585-acre campus, including walk-through tours of academic, recreational, athletic, dining and residential facilities.
Prospective students will also be welcomed by current faculty from all academic departments, athletics staff, and admissions and financial aid counselors. These members of the Edinboro University team always look forward to opportunities to meet and speak with prospective students and their families. Personal and professional experiences have provided Edinboro faculty with an understanding of the sometimes anxious moments experienced by students and families in deciding on the best fit for post-secondary education.
“At Edinboro, we’re fond of saying ‘great things happen here,’” said Interim President James D. Moran. “It’s true. But great things happen here because great people – faculty, staff and students – happen here. With our student-centered philosophy, prospective students and their families will experience that great people concept the moment they arrive on campus.”
Moran said that while visitors are welcomed to Edinboro year-around, “fall is the best time to begin the process of exploring college life.”
Hundreds of visitors are expected on campus from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday. While tours will be available at facilities throughout campus, most of the academic, admissions and financial aid counseling will be available at the Frank G. Pogue Student Center.
With over 100 academic majors, 50 minors, 17 varsity sports, hundreds of clubs and organizations and a vibrant Greek and social life, the “Edinboro Experience” has provided the “right fit” for thousands of students for more than 150 years.
