Waynesburg University will be hosting an overnight visit for prospective high school students Sunday, Nov. 11, into Monday, Nov. 12. Participants will stay in dorms with current students and get a “behind the curtain” look at the University, said Kyle Digiandomenico, admissions counselor.

Once participants arrive on campus, they will be introduced to their host students and have time to explore campus. Then, they will be invited to participate in some short ice breakers and games, followed by dinner in the Benedum Dining Hall. After dinner, participants can attend Upper Room, the University’s student-led worship service, and enjoy an ice cream party.

Digiandomenico said the overnight visit gives high school students the most “authentic experience” at Waynesburg, giving them a closer look at residence life, classes and student activities.

“This is the only visit where you’ll get a 100 percent authentic view of campus and Waynesburg University,” said Digiandomenico. “Other visits cover just 50 percent of the experience. Hopefully, through this visit, a student can determine if Waynesburg University is the best for them.”

For more information about the overnight visit, contact the Admissions Office at 724-852-3446.

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 22 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
