Even though I never got to attend the festivities of Admitted Students Day when I was a high school senior being behind the scenes as an RA proved to be just as fun. Once you’ve received your red envelope there are three major events that can help you seal the deal:
- Multicultural Admissions Program (MAP) – April 1st: MAP is both fun and educational. The purpose of the program is to show incoming students the importance of diversity and inclusion on campus. Prospective students get to spend a night in the residence halls, get familiar with some upperclassmen, and end the night with an epic dance party!
- Admitted Students Day – April 2nd or 3rd: Get to know SJU and make sure it’s the right fit for you. Discover which major you would like to pursue, take a tour of the residence halls, have a guided tour of campus and learn about all of the resources that Saint Joe’s has to offer. Whether you are a current or prospective student, today is the day that you want to eat in Campion because it’s sure to be a treat!
- Walk with a Hawk – April 4th: Be a Hawk for a day! Literally. Spend the day shadowing a current student to get a feel of campus and what the classes on campus are really like. Experience the dining hall and find your favorite spot on campus to hang out. If you attend on April 4th, the event is shortened following the long weekend. Other dates include, March 30th and April 18th. Parents and Guardians: While your child is having a great time getting to know their new home away from home, there will be plenty of sessions that will help answer all of your questions before your child embarks on their college journey.
