Registration will begin at 5 p.m. in the Stover Campus Center on the Waynesburg University campus. The event is open to high school seniors only.

“The overnight visitation is a great opportunity for students to experience Waynesburg University in a different light,” said Kyle DiGiandomenico, admission counselor. “For some students, engaging with professors, current students and prospective students allows them to feel more comfortable and confident in their [college] choice.”

Upon registration, students will meet their host and check in to their dorm room. That evening, students will participate in a pizza party, group activity and Upper Room, a student-led worship service. On Monday, students will have breakfast in the Benedum Dining Hall and attend classes according to their personalized itinerary.

Parent tours will also be held on Monday at three times: 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. All tours will depart from the Admissions Office in Miller Hall.

“Our goal for these types of visits is for students to reassure themselves that Waynesburg is the right fit for them,” said DiGiandomenico.

Waynesburg enrolls approximately 1,400 undergraduate students, with more than 70 academic concentrations for students to study and has most recently been ranked nationally as a top school for value by MONEY Magazine and College Factual.

For more information, contact DiGiandomenico at 724-852-3446 or kdigiand@waynesburg.edu. To register, visit www.waynesburg.edu/undergraduate/admissions/overnight-visit.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
