Experience U. of Wisconsin-Parkside: Experience Day and Open Houses
Area high school students and adult learners have several opportunities to take an in-depth look at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside this fall.
The university opens its doors for an Experience Day in mid-November and a pair of Saturday Open Houses, one in early November and another in December. Each is free and open to everyone.
Experience Day provides students and their parents as well as adults who want to start or return to college with an insider’s view of UW-Parkside’s most popular courses of study.
On Friday, Nov. 19, everyone is welcome to explore the university’s career-making social and behavioral sciences degrees.
Explore everything from criminal justice, psychology, and economics to geography, history, and political science majors.
Every Experience Day gives prospective students the chance to get acquainted with the university’s exceptional faculty.
Plus, there’s a brief overview of the admissions process, a question-and-answer session, and a campus tour. Special sessions cover important topics like financial aid, UW-Parkside’s Living Learning Communities, and the university’s Honors Program.
For anyone whose schedule doesn’t permit a weekday visit, UW-Parkside offers Saturday Open Houses Nov. 6 and Dec. 11, 2010.
Each Open House features an admissions overview, a campus tour, and a question-and-answer session with an admissions counselor. On-site admission is available. Open House hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
UW-Parkside is the most ethnically diverse of the 13 four-year campuses in the University of Wisconsin System.
The university features a recently expanded Student Center, a new suite-style residence hall, and is working on a $34 million dollar expansion of its fine arts, theatre arts, and music education facilities.
