Villa Maria is hosting three events this fall that give high school students and their families the ability to visit campus and learn more about the College’s academic, social, and spiritual offerings. Each event is free to attend, and will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with faculty, current students and other college representatives, including admissions, financial aid, athletics, student life and more.
“There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a college, and a campus visit is hands-down the best way to have a personalized experience before making your choice,” said Becky Strathearn, the College’s director of admissions. “There is tons of information is available online but until you walk around a campus and try to picture yourself learning and living there, you can’t know for sure that it’s the best fit for you to pursue your degree.”
More information on each of the three upcoming events Villa is hosting can be found below.
