MOVE event tomorrow and Saturday

The following message is from the Office of Admissions:

A reminder: Tomorrow and Saturday, the Admissions Office will host nearly 50 students during MOVE (Multicultural Overnight Visit Experience), a yield event for admitted students in the Class of 2020 with the goal of enrolling them for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Visitor parking has been reserved in the George Washington (GW) lot, along Double Drive and in the 4th level of the Parking Deck with overflow along College Avenue. Primary event locations are Lee Hall, the Hurley Convergence Center, the University Center, and campus/residence halls. Expect to see increased foot traffic on campus and curious newcomers in the University Center. Help them know their presence is a pleasure by anticipating the crowds and responding warmly!

MOVE begins tomorrow with a Welcoming Session at 9 a.m. in Lee Hall hosted by Provost Jonathan Levin and Leah Cox, Special Assistant to the President of Diversity and Inclusion.  Families of visiting students are then invited to attend an Admissions Office information session and campus tour and have lunch in the University Center. The families then leave, and activities are planned for the students throughout the remainder of the day and evening.

While the Office of Admissions sponsors these events, the entire campus assumes the role of host. Please extend every courtesy and generous hospitality to these visitors. Thank you for your commitment to perpetuating 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. The Office of Admissions appreciates your involvement in and support of these signature programs that shape the Class of 2020.
