“Video visit” allows prospective students to discover Centre without leaving home
December 30, 2010 By Leigh Cocanougher
(above) during the winter months, Centre’s office of admission
offers “video visit” DVDs to help them learn about the College.
Although undoubtedly the best way to discover Centre College is to visit its campus in person, not every prospective student has the immediate opportunity to do so.
So while wintery weather and hectic holiday schedules make travel to Danville more difficult, prospective students are invited to borrow the admission office’s “video visits” DVD, which is filled with information about the College.
From interviews with students and professors to shots of campus to photos from study abroad trips around the world, the DVD allows high school students to discover what makes the Centre experience so remarkable.
On the newest DVD, viewers are privy to stories about professor/student research projects (which are extremely common at Centre), the joys of living on campus (where 98 percent of students reside for all four years), the thrilling adventures of study abroad (in which about 85 percent of Centre students take part), the beautiful campus and much more.
Of course, for students who are able to visit campus, the admission office strongly encourages them to do so. The video can also be a “first experience” of campus, to be followed by an in-person visit.
During one of the many upcoming on-campus events, prospective students can sit in on classes, meet professors and other members of the Centre community, stay overnight in a residence hall, eat lunch in the Campus Center, interview with admission counselors, cheer on a sports team and, of course, tour the campus.
Prospective students are also invited to schedule private campus visits, which are specially tailored to their interests.
