Classes begin tomorrow and already planning for the future

Orientation wound down today with our annual activities fair on the quad. With classes starting tomorrow, new students had a chance to learn about how they might choose to spend their time outside the classroom by meeting with reps from many of the clubs and organizations on campus. The weather was great and the quad was packed!!

With our entering first-year and transfer students busy with orientation the last few days the admissions staff spent Tuesday and Wednesday holed up planning for the next admissions cycle. We spent time discussing recruitment plans, our new on-line application, meeting with our colleagues from financial aid, career development, and first-year programs, among others, to be sure we have the most up to date information to share with prospective students and their families.

We'll be visiting close to 600 high schools around the world, attending over 200 college fairs, offering off-campus interviews in about two dozen locations and delivering information sessions in 14 east coast cities...yes we will be busy this fall!!

We have 3 new staff members joining the counseling team this fall....Alison Sherlock, Admissions Counselor; Michelle Carrara, Coordinator of International Admissions; and Kait Gentile, Sr. Asst. Director of Admissions. We'll be updating our meet the staff page shortly, so check back for the most update information in the next couple of weeks.

See you on the road this fall!!
