Admissions Office Open House, Oct. 17

On Saturday, Oct. 17, the University of Mary Washington will host an Admissions Open House. About 225 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 800 visitors.

Visitor parking has been reserved in the George Washington parking lot and along Double Drive. Primary event locations are Dodd Auditorium, Lee Hall, Hurley Convergence Center Digital Auditorium, University Center, and campus/residence hall tours in Mason. Expect to see increased foot traffic on campus (especially between 11 and 2) 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 University Center 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 shows the heart of our community. Faculty and staff will be involved in an Academic Showcase (9 a.m., University Center Chandler Ballroom), Academic Spotlight sessions (12 noon, various locations), Special Interest sessions (1 p.m., Lee Hall), and Facility Tours (2 p.m., various locations). Thank you to all UMW partners who will spend part of their Saturday highlighting our community! An agenda is posted here: Open House 10/17/15.

If you’d like to be involved in Open Houses or have ideas, please contact Admissions at 540.654.2000 or email admit@umw.edu.
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.

Other Open House dates for 2015-2016 are Feb. 15 and March 25. Thank you for your partnership in showcasing all that is great about UMW!
