Even high school students who have grown up on the lawns of Union College will benefit from attending this month's open house event.
Called "Discover U," the event will bring more than just a standard campus tour. It will be a close encounter with facets of Union College that reach beyond the park-like setting.
Opportunities will be provided for prospective students to learn detailed information about what Union has to offer. Add to that a baseball game as a bonus, and the result is a fun, informative day.
The event begins at 9AM on Saturday, March 31, when Union will open its doors for high school juniors and seniors.
A welcome session kicks off the day. Following that, students will take departmental tours of Union's campus. At each stop on the tour, a faculty member will greet students with information about that specific academic department.
Other stops include the financial aid office, the admissions office and other various places located across campus.
Following the tour, students will meet for lunch. The day will officially end at noon; however, students are invited to stay and take in a baseball doubleheader against Point University, which starts at 1PM.
To register for the open house, go to the Union College homepage, www.unionky.edu. There is a "Discovery U" icon on this page that links to the registration form. While there is no deadline for registering, officials strongly recommend that prospective students submit the form in advance. This will help ensure group sizes will be kept small enough to remain personal.
