Admissions Open House – Friday, April 18, 2014

The following message is from the Office of Admissions: 

Tomorrow, Friday, April 18, 2014, the University of Mary Washington will host an Admissions Open House.  About 437 prospective students (typically transfers and high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores) and their families will visit campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. for this event.  Estimated guest count is ~ 1250 visitors.

Visitor parking has been reserved in the parking deck off of Route 1. Primary event locations are the Anderson Center, Lee Hall, Seacobeck Dining Hall, Dodd Auditorium, and campus/residence hall tours in Alvey and Randolph.  Expect to see increased foot traffic on campus (especially between noon and 3:00) and curious newcomers in the dining facilities.  Help them know their presence is a pleasure by anticipating the crowds and responding warmly, especially in the dining hall where crowds will be heavy between noon and 2 p.m.  A special note to Seacobeck diners: please help!  Ask visitors if they need assistance locating anything. Help them find a place to sit. Welcome them at your table if there’s room and talk to them about UMW. A kind word or deed makes a HUGE impression.

While the Office of Admissions sponsors these events, the entire campus assumes the role of host. You represent our brand, our mission, and our sense of the UMW family. One way to show your support is to tweet to @UMWAdmissions and/or post to Instagram and tag @UMWAdmissions. We would like to see #UMWOpenHouse trending throughout the day.

You may be relieved to know that Open House is the last large-scale event of the 2013-2014 school year.  Thank you for your partnership in showcasing all that is great about UMW!
