More than 138 students and their families will be on the Tusculum College campus on Saturday, March 7, to meet with staff and faculty and learn more about the College and what it has to offer.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
“Our spring Open House is a chance for students who are interested in Tusculum College to visit campus and experience what it would be like for them to be a student here,” said Melissa Ripley, director of operations and marketing for the College’s Admission Office.
Students and their families are expected from across Tennessee, as well as from Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida and Kentucky. And, according to Ripley, the day will be filled with activities for both students and parents to learn about the College and to experience a day as a Tusculum College student.
“This is a chance for the students to see what Tusculum College is really about,” Ripley said, adding that students and parents will have the opportunity to meet faculty members and students will attend a mock class.
“There are parent sessions on financial aid, student life and opportunities for students to complete the application process if they choose,” Ripley said. Tours of the campus will be offered, including visits to the residence halls, lunch in the cafeteria and a visit to the new Thomas J. Garland Library.
Parents and students both will attend financial aid workshops and will have assistance from representatives of the College’s Department of Admissions in answering any questions regarding either financial aid or their application to the College.
Ripley said that more than 25 faculty and staff will be working the day of the Open House and interacting with the students and their families. “So many people are involved and excited to meet our potential new students. It’s a great opportunity for us as well as the families involved.”
