Edinboro University’s Fall Open House to welcome prospective students, families

10/07/2013

Many associate the autumn season with the changing colors of leaves and football kick-offs, while others focus on making important decisions about their futures, such as which college to attend. The Fall Open House at Edinboro University is an ideal and unrushed time to get answers to all of your important questions and jump-start the college application process.

EU will welcome prospective students and their families to campus for its annual Fall Open House on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 1 to 3 p.m. 

Edinboro’s Open House is an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors and their families, along with adult, transfer and potential graduate students, to learn more about northwestern Pennsylvania’s largest and most comprehensive institution of higher education. Throughout the event, visitors are welcome to tour Edinboro’s 585-acre campus, including walk-through tours of academic, recreational, athletic, dining and residential facilities. 

Tours this year will include a visit to Edinboro’s most recently updated facility – Butterfield Hall. As part of a building expansion completed in this summer, science and math labs, a literacy center and an integrated arts classroom were added, and all classrooms were outfitted with enhanced technological access. Known to many as the education building, Butterfield Hall is home to the School of Education.

Prospective students and their families also will be able to speak with faculty and chairpersons from all academic departments, athletics staff members, and admissions and financial aid counselors.  Led by President Julie E. Wollman’s commitment to excellence and student success, the University’s team members are eager to assist all visitors.

Visiting students also are encouraged to take advantage of Edinboro’s “Admit on the Spot” program. Students who bring completed applications along with high school transcripts (college transcripts for prospective transfer students) and SAT or ACT scores will have their application reviewed by an Admissions Counselor and could receive an admission decision before they leave campus.

With 70 baccalaureate programs, 16 graduate degree offerings, 10 associate degree programs, more than 50 minors, 17 varsity sports, outstanding laboratories and libraries, nationally renowned services for students with physical disabilities, hundreds of clubs and organizations, and a vibrant Greek and social life, EU is the perfect place to discover the true meaning of success.

A campus visit is a wonderful opportunity to determine if a college or university is the right fit. If our fall Open House doesn’t fit your schedule, please contact our Admissions Office to arrange a personal tour.
