“Visitation days at Waynesburg University are designed to provide prospective students and their families an informative and engaging day,” said Jacqueline Palko, director of admissions. “Not only will students and their families learn about our mission and excellent academic programs and outcomes, but they will also interact with current students and faculty members.”

After registration, students will have the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff in their elected majors, learn about admissions and financial aid, take a tour of the campus and enjoy lunch in the Benedum Dining Hall.

With Thanksgiving just a day away, the busy fall travel season is all wrapped up for many admissions professionals across the country. No more rushing from high school to high school, no more standing behind a college fair table and no more late afternoons on Panera’s Wi-Fi—at least until early Spring.

 

Now in my fourth year as an admissions representative at Waynesburg University, I have the hustle and bustle of four of those travel seasons under my belt. And while there are many more seasoned than I, I certainly had the pleasure of experiencing a great deal over the course of those four autumns.

 

From wings in Buffalo and cheesesteaks in Philly, to crème pie in Boston and BBQ in Texas, I always tried to sample the local cuisine. When I found myself with a brief bit of downtime, I even attempted to hit a few of the sites, Fenway Park and Maine’s rocky coast included.

 

Despite the personal perks, though, I speak on behalf of the entire Admissions staff here when I say our favorite part is simply interacting with all of the individuals we meet over the course of the fall, from the typical sit-down in a high school guidance office to a chance encounter like the one I had in Dallas with a man born in Waynesburg’s hospital 60-70 years prior. The interest in and connections to our small university in Southwestern Pennsylvania never cease to excite me.

 

Last October, I happened to be in northern New Jersey during Waynesburg’s Fall Break. Two current students who I had met in the area in years prior stopped by my table at two separate events to say hello. They recalled and reminisced about their own college search, which seemed like such a short time prior. It’s those conversations that make the fall travel season such an enjoyable experience, and it’s those relationships that can make a job in admissions so rewarding.

 

So on this, the eve of Thanksgiving, we in the Admissions Office want to pause and reflect on what we’re thankful for—for safe travels, quality conversations, and delightful students and families we have the pleasure of working with, day in and day out.

 

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Waynesburg University. "Let us come before him with thanksgiving..." -Psalm 95:2a
