Waynesburg University will host a fall overnight visitation for high school seniors Sunday, Nov. 9, through Monday, Nov. 10. Registration will be held in the Stover Campus Center beginning at 5 p.m.

“The Overnight Visitation gives prospective students the opportunity to ‘test drive’ to see what it would be like to be a student here at Waynesburg University,” said Jessica Sumpter, director of admissions at Waynesburg University.

When students arrive on campus, they will be paired with current Waynesburg University students who will serve as their overnight hosts. Through their hosts, participants will be given an inside look at the residence halls, academic programs, student life and campus facilities.

“By staying in the residence halls and being hosted by current Waynesburg University students, high school seniors are able to experience an aspect of student life that they would not be able to experience on any other visitation day,” said Sumpter.

Participants will have the opportunity to observe classes related to their potential areas of study and meet with students and faculty members in their intended majors. A variety of activities will be offered to students including icebreakers, a pizza party, informational student discussion groups and student-assisted worship, among others.

For more information or to register, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-225-7393.
