Prospective college students can get a taste of what campus life is all about as Western Carolina University holds Open House on Saturday, Nov. 20.
Hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Open House gives students and their families a chance to tour the campus, including classrooms, residence halls, the library and WCU’s new Campus Recreation Center. Faculty members will be on hand during an information fair to discuss academic opportunities and career interests, and representatives of student groups will be available to talk about extracurricular activities on campus.
Registration and check-in will be held from 8 to 9 a.m. at WCU’s Fine and Performing Arts Center. After a welcome session from 9 to 9:30 a.m., campus tours will be given from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The information fair will be held from 10 a.m. until noon in and around A.K. Hinds University Center.
Prospective students will be able to use their meal tickets for a free lunch at the new Courtyard Dining Hall or University Food Court, and all guests may purchase lunch at any university dining location.
For prospective students unable to come to campus on Nov. 20, other Open House events are scheduled for Feb. 19 and March 19.
