Looking to attend St. Lawrence College this coming fall? The SLC Open House offers students the chance to meet College faculty, staff, and current students, take a tour of the campus, plus so much more! I’m dedicating this blog post to listing the top five reasons you should be attending the open house this year. So let’s get going!
1. CAMPUS TOUR
The campus tour provides a complete tour through the building so you not only get to see potential classrooms, but also get to look at various facilities like the SHAC. Possibly most important of all, is you get a tour of the residence, which gives you a good idea of what your first year living accommodations are going to look like, should you choose to live on campus.
2. VISIT FULL TIME PROGRAM SESSIONS
If you’re curious about what the classroom environment is like, you’ll have a chance to visit one or more of SLC full-time class sessions. This will provide you a good insight in what you can expect when you attend SLC.
3. MEET FACULITY, STAFF AND CURRENT STUDENTS
Though the opportunity to see the campus first hand, and witness class in action is valuable, you’re most likely to get the most information from interacting with the faculty, staff and other students. The faculty can outline what you can expect in terms of marking and course load, as well as problems first year or first-time students experience from their perspective. Talking to fellow students not only allows you to understand how specific programs work, but allows you to converse with people of a similar age and experience level.
4. MAKE CONTACTS FOR FIRST YEAR
Not only will you be talking with faculty, staff and students currently attending, but the open house will give you a chance to run into students looking into taking the same program you are! This is a great opportunity to make friends and socialize for the future. Having a network of solid friends to socialize and rely on, is key for maintaining your happiness and academic success in College.
5. FIND OUT ABOUT IMPORTANT COLLEGE SERVICES
Although this heading might seem like the most uninteresting, SLC offers many important on-campus services that will come in handy during your studies here. From Financial Aid, to tutoring, and everything in between, there is a good chance you will find yourself seeking the campus services out during your stay here.
Well that was a brief overview, and I hope you found it insightful. Remember, Open House takes place on Saturday January 27, 2018 from 9 am to 12 pm. If you cannot make it, you may still be able to set up a tour outside of that day! For more information just contact 1-800-463-0752, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
