Accepted Students Day

Why not take your college out for a spin around the block before going all in?
Nearly every college hosts their own version of Accepted Students Day, a great opportunity to visit the schools prospective students were accepted into. Over the winter break, I attended Monmouth University’s. I knew that this is where I wanted to attend come Fall, but visiting only made me more sure of that.
Here are some things to expect if you decide to attend one of these events:
- Presentations. All open house events for colleges I attended gave presentations that informed the students of the history of the school, classes, location, social activity, and basically anything you wanted to know about the school to persuade you to enroll.
- Answers. Student ambassadors and members of different committees and boards will be available to answer any questions you may have.
- Tours. The student ambassadors will break everyone up into small tour groups that lead you around campus. Expect to get your “final feel” of the campus from these tours. Ask lots of questions!
- Food. Sometimes the food is directly from the dining hall, and if it is, this will be what you’re going to eat for the next four years if you choose attend that school. Picky eaters, take note.
- Photos. Either just around campus or in a designated area with props and the mascot, be prepared to take a lot of pictures.
Whether you are in the process of making your decision or have already made your decision, you should take advantage pf what these days have to offer.
If the event is scheduled on a day that is not convenient for you, reach out to the admissions office, as most times they can arrange a day for you to have an individual visit and spend some time in the classes, eat in the dining hall, and sometimes even spend a night in the residence halls.
There is so much useful information to be gathered from these events!
