As we move further into spring and closer to summer, some colleges in the area are wrapping up their school year. But before the students are set free, school officials and students at West Virginia Wesleyan College showed high schoolers the perks of being a Bobcat.
Spring preview day is something Wesleyan faculty puts on every year, mainly for juniors, but any high school student is welcome. The day started off with behind the scenes information with a presentation from admissions, an overview of the application process, and how to qualify for financial aid.
Later in the day, potential students got to talk to current students about their experiences and learn about all of the different majors. One organizer said she thinks this is a great opportunity for anyone trying to get a better understanding of the college life.
"I just think it's really important to get on campus, see what we have to offer, and see the campus. They were able to talk to faculty, they heard from a panel of currents students, they had a tour of campus. So they really had a good introduction to the college," said Beth Lampinen, Associate Director of Admissions.
If you missed out Saturday, there will be plenty more visit days in the fall.
