b2ap3_thumbnail_5-10-Summer-visit-days.jpgWaynesburg University will offer two Summer Visitation Days for transfer students, high school students and their families Friday, June 24, and Friday, July 15.

“The best ways to see if a college is right for you is to visit their campus,” said Jacqueline Palko, director of admissions for Waynesburg University. “This gives students the opportunity to interact with current students, experience the campus environment and possibly find their future favorite faculty member.”

Registration begins at 9 a.m. both days in Roberts Chapel. 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. Students and parents will follow the same schedule.

The purpose of the Summer Visitation Days is to provide prospective students and their families with the opportunity to experience Waynesburg University. For many students, this is their first visit to campus, so it is important that they get a chance to tour it, meet with professors and learn more about the admissions and financial aid processes.

Waynesburg University is home to approximately 1,400 undergraduate students and offers more than 70 academic concentrations. The University is consistently ranked as a top school for value nationwide and maintains its status as one of the least expensive private institutions in Pennsylvania.
