|Centre hosting Diversity Days
RELEASED: Nov. 4, 2004
DANVILLE, KYCentre will host Diversity Days on campus Nov. 12-13. The College welcomes all prospective students who have identified themselves as minorities to campus for an enhanced visit. Centre also invites students who have a general interest in diversity issues to participate.
The program is designed to introduce prospective students to some of the resources on campus and give them a chance to chat with current students who are involved with various diversity issues, says Ned Frazer, assistant director of admission.
Participants in the program begin their visit on Friday with a chance to observe a class, have an interview with an admission counselor, tour campus and meet with a campus contact.
In the evening, prospective students will enjoy a dinner with Centre faculty, staff and students. Later that night, the Diversity Student Union is hosting a reception and prospective students have the opportunity to attend a DramaCentre production.
Prospective students will stay overnight in the residence halls with current students.
A minority student panel, which will give prospective students a chance to ask questions of current minority students at Centre, will take place Saturday morning. The students will wrap up the weekend with an open house in the College's Norton Center for the Arts.
The weekend will be helpful to students making their college decision, says J.H. Atkins, assistant vice president and associate professor of education at Centre. The admission office stresses that one of the key decision-making factors is the college visit.
