COLUMBIA, KY- Lindsey Wilson College will hold five open houses this year for prospective college students and their family members.
The first open house of 2011-12 will be held on Saturday, October 29.
The other four open houses will be held on November 19, 2011; and January 28, March 24 and April 28, 2012 . The March 24 open house will include a talent showcase, and April 28 open house will have a junior-senior focus.
Each open house begins with registration at 8:30amCT and concludes following a complimentary lunch in the college's award-winning Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.
An open house provides prospective students and their family members a behind-the-scenes look at undergraduate life on Lindsey Wilson's A.P. White Campus.
"We encourage high school seniors and high school juniors and the parents of those students to attend an open house," said Gina Collins, an LWC admissions counselor. "It's a lot of very useful information packed into a very short amount time."
At an open house, students and parents will meet with faculty members of LWC's 26 undergraduate programs. In the last 10 years, the size of LWC's full-time undergraduate faculty has almost doubled.
"We have an outstanding faculty, whose members are committed to providing students with a challenging liberal arts education that prepares them for successful careers," Collins said.
Students can also meet with advisers of student organizations as well as coaches of the 26 Blue Raider intercollegiate athletic programs.
"At Lindsey Wilson, more than 80 percent of our undergraduate students are involved in an extracurricular activity or a sport," Collins said. "These things are very important because they help you network, meet people, get experience and build your resume. So when you visit a school, it's very important to ask what its student life is like."
At an open house, family members will meet with college officials who will explain how to pay for a college education. Many family members are surprised to learn how affordable it is to attend Lindsey Wilson, Collins said.
"More than 95 percent of Lindsey Wilson students receive financial assistance," Collins said. "We will help students and their family members learn how to apply for federal, state and institutional financial aid."
Even in a digital age that allows students to take virtual tours of just about any U.S. college and university, nothing compares with the experience of visiting a college campus, Collins said.
"It's important to immerse yourself in a school's campus life to find out if you can see yourself living at that school for the next four years," Collins said. "You need to figure out, Can I see myself feeling comfortable on this campus? You need to make sure you feel that comfortable there, that you feel welcome there, that you are not overwhelmed -- and the only way to do that is with a campus visit."
