High school and transfer students are encouraged to take advantage of one of two remaining sessions of the University’s most popular visit program being held Saturday, Nov. 3 and Monday, Nov. 12. Registration is available at siue.edu/undergraduate/visit/preview.
“Preview SIUE is an exciting event as we welcome hundreds of guests, introducing them to all that SIUE has to offer and answering any questions they may have,” said Ryan Downey, assistant director for new student and campus visit programs in the Office of Admissions. “The program showcases our engaging campus and demonstrates why the University can be the future home for these prospective students to achieve their educational goals.”
Preview SIUE is tailored as an open house, with information catering to both prospective students and their guests. The program assists prospective students in making an informed decision on their pursuit of higher education, by providing opportunities to:
- Visit with faculty in the area of study they are considering pursuing
- Learn about the application and admission process
- Determine the cost of attending SIUE and learning how financial aid can assist
- Participate in a guided campus tour
On Saturday, Nov. 3, students interested in laboratory sciences, math, or fine and performing arts will have an opportunity to participate in hands-on activities in SIUE’s state-of-the-art labs, tour its theater and visit the newly remodeled art and design facilities.
On Monday, Nov. 12, the College of Arts and Sciences will highlight programs in the humanities and social sciences. Students interested in majors such as English, history, philosophy, foreign languages and more will have an opportunity to sit in on a class and interact with faculty and current students.
Also on Nov. 12, in support of Veteran’s Day, prospective students can choose to take a campus tour guided by a veteran student ambassador. They will also have the opportunity to speak with a Veteran Service representative regarding benefits or for details on passing benefits on to a child.
