Edinboro University’s Open House welcomes prospective students, families

10/16/2012

To many, autumn is about brilliant foliage and football kick-offs, but others are focusing on important decisions about their futures – such as which college to attend. 

On Saturday, Edinboro University will help many with those tough higher education decisions at its annual Fall Open House.

Edinboro University’s Open House is an ideal opportunity for high school juniors and seniors and their families, along with adult, transfer and potential graduate students, to learn more about their successful futures at the region’s largest and most comprehensive institution of higher education. Throughout the event, visitors are welcome to tour the aesthetically-pleasing 585-acre campus, including walk-through tours of academic, recreational, athletic, dining and residential facilities. Highlights of the tour, in addition to fall foliage at its colorful peak, will be newly renovated science labs in Cooper Science Center and modern, suite-style residence halls.

Prospective students and their families also will be welcomed by faculty and chairpersons representing all academic departments, athletics staff members, and admissions and financial aid counselors.  Their personal and professional experiences have provided them with a visceral understanding of the sometimes anxious moments experienced by students and families in deciding on the best fit for post-secondary education. Led by President Julie E. Wollman’s commitment to excellence and student success, the University’s team members are friendly and eager to assist all visitors to Edinboro’s Fall Open House.

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, 405 Scotland Rd., with ample parking available across the road from McComb Fieldhouse.

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 a century and a half.
