Visiting Centre is the best way for prospective students to discover
whether the College is right for them.
As the summer rolls on, prospective students and their families are reminded that Centre College will hold two admission open house events in July. The first is scheduled for Friday, July 9; the second will be held on Friday, July 23.
Visiting Centre during the summer months offers many advantages. With students away for their summer vacation, the pace slows down, allowing prospective students and their parents to learn about the College in a relaxed atmosphere.
During regular summer campus visits, prospective students have the opportunity to take campus tours; speak with admission counselors; and, if they call ahead to schedule a visit, meet with faculty members from a specific program. Coaches are also happy to meet with students and their families during the summer months.
While standard summer campus visits are tailored to a prospective student’s interests, summer open house events (as well as open houses held during other seasons at Centre) offer more regulated schedules. During the summer open houses, students will hear welcoming comments, take guided campus tours, attend a panel discussion with Centre faculty and students, attend “Admission 101” (a discussion on everything having to do with the admission process) and enjoy a lemonade reception with Centre students, faculty and staff.
“Open houses are a great and easy way to get a taste of what life as a student is like,” says Dawn Brown-Piatt, admission counselor. “And there’s no substitute for actually visiting a college.”
Registration for each July open house will begin at 9:00 a.m. on the day of the event, and each will conclude with a lemonade reception at 12:30 p.m.
