Fall Visitors’ Day is almost here!

This Friday, October 8th, is Whitman’s first Visitors’ Day of the 2010-2011 year. We are rolling out the red carpet for prospective students and their families. The master schedule of events is available online. As the coordinator for Fall Visitors’ Day I (as well as our second FVD, coming up on November 12th), let me highlight some of the exciting goings-on Friday:

  • Welcome from President George Bridges
  • Faculty Panel on Signature Programs
  • Tours of the Campus
  • Student Point-of-View Discussion
  • Admission and Financial Aid Presentation
  • Off-Camps Studies Overview
  • Intercultural Center & Student Engagement Center Discussion
  • Outdoor Program Slideshow
  • Introduction to Athletics at Whitman
  • Discussions of Whitman’s most Popular Majors and Special Programs

The festivities will begin at 8:45 a.m. in the Reid Campus Center and will conclude in the Maxey Hall at 4:00 p.m. We expect to see around 200 prospective students and family members on campus – we welcome prospective families as well as the broader Whitman community to attend any activities going on throughout the day. While you can of course schedule a visit for almost any time of year, we certainly welcome your attendance and participation in the first of many exciting visitors’ days!
