University of the Sciences hosted more than 525 prospective students and their families this semester as part of its Fall Open House Series which wrapped up on Sunday, Dec. 8. The three open houses held this semester collectively boasted nearly 100 more potential students compared to last year’s series.
“The fall open house series is an opportunity for prospective students and their families to visit campus and explore academic programs, meet with faculty, tour campus and interact with current students,” said Colleen Hoag, assistant director of enrollment events at USciences. “The program is designed to educate students about the many opportunities and positive outcomes available to them though our degree programs here at the University.”
This year’s open houses were held on Oct. 20, Nov. 16, and Dec. 8, and included a welcome presentation from University president Helen Giles-Gee, PhD; hands-on demonstrations from academic programs, a student resource fair, as well as a student guided tour of campus.
Hoag said the University’s admission counselors received a lot of positive feedback from guests regarding the open houses and the institution’s offerings. As for now, the Admission Office
is gearing up for its Accepted Student Day Series, slated to begin in the spring with events running February through April.
