Wilkes to hold Open House Nov. 14, instant decision, sessions

Wilkes University will hold an open house for perspective freshmen and transfer students on Nov. 14.

The open house is a chance to show perspective students the many qualities of the university. It does this by allowing students to walk around the campus and experience it for themselves.

“I’m excited to see the campus,” said Kristen Stepanski, a perspective student who plans on attending, “I’ve heard a lot of great things about the school but it’s exciting to get to experience it in real life.”

The schedule for the day begins at 8 a.m. in the Henry Student Center. It includes the instant decision making process, three different sessions, a provided lunch, and an academic fair. More information and a detailed schedule can be found on the Wilkes University website under the Admission & Aid tab.

Wilkes University open houses have a unique feature that many other colleges do not. The instant decision making process allows perspective students to drop off their transcripts and applications in the morning and know an answer about admission before they go home.

The academic fair at the end of the day will allow each perspective student to meet and talk with some professors and students in their major or explore the many majors Wilkes offers if undecided.

Anyone interested in attending the open house can contact the Admission Office or visit the website to register or for more information. Personalized visits and virtual tours are also available for students who cannot attend the open house.
