Western Carolina University invites prospective college students, families and friends as the university holds its first Open House of the fall semester on Saturday, Sept. 15.
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 academic programs and extracurricular opportunities, and find out the important details of topics such as financial aid.
The day’s activities will begin with registration and an academic fair located around the concourse of WCU’s Ramsey Regional Activity Center. Following a welcome session in the main arena of the Ramsey Center, prospective students will have a chance to engage in more in-depth academic sessions led by WCU faculty members.
Tours of campus in late morning will be followed by an information fair, where visitors will be able to find out about the many activities, student organizations and services that are available for WCU students.
Lunch will be available at university dining facilities, and prospective students can redeem their free lunch voucher at Courtyard Dining Hall or the A.K. Hinds University Center food court.
For interested students who cannot attend on Sept. 15, other Open House events are scheduled for Nov. 10, Feb. 16 and March 16. Also, campus tours are available year-round by appointment for students and their families.
