Last week, I outlined some of the top 10 reasons to attend a Loyola (or any) open house. Here are the remaining 5 reasons.
5. You have questions about admission deadlines.
Every school has different deadlines and a different process. Attend a Loyola admission presentation specifically for high school juniors or high school seniors or transfer students to see what deadlines are important for you. You can also talk personally with an admission counselor and learn how to APPLY.
4. You want to know about scholarship availability.
YES, we offer scholarships! The best part is that your APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION IS YOUR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION. Our admission presentation reviews all the possibilities.
3. You want to talk with current students about social life and student activities.
Look at the schedule. You have the opportunity to go on a student-led campus tour. Ask questions. You have the chance to sit in on a session about first generation and/or multicultural students. Ask the students on the panel what resources are available and why they chose Loyola. If you have an interest in the arts, check out the Fine Arts Annex or the new Newhart Family Theatre.
2. You have questions specific to your academic record.
Our entire admission staff is on hand to assist both days. Ask away!
1. Loyola is a TOP CHOICE but you want to know if it is a real “FIT.”
We want you to make the choice that best suits you and helps you attain your goals. But if you haven’t visited campus, you will never know if Loyola is the right choice for you. Walk the campus. What do you think? Can you see yourself here? Talk with students you see walking by who aren’t a part of the formal program. What do they like about Loyola? Do we offer what you are interested in studying? Are you thinking about studying abroad? We have many options and a global presence.
It doesn’t matter what your questions or concerns may be. These two days are set aside to assist you in your college selection process. So, pardon our construction—we are making progress—with a new student union and new residence halls. Come check out what the Loyola Experience might hold for you!
