WCSU hosts Accepted Students Day

Western Connecticut State University is hosting Accepted Students Day today. 

 

Last year more than 380 families, about a thousand people, joined faculty and staff at Western Connecticut State University for “Accepted Student Day.” This year that number is expected to be significantly higher, with 30 percent more applications for the fall semester.

 

At 10:30 am, accepted students and their families will gather at the Midtown campus on White Street in Danbury to see what the university has to offer. For prospective Honors Program students, there will be a 9am brunch held by Program Director Dr Chris Kukk about what the program entails.  Following a welcome address, students are invited to listen to faculty presentations in their major of interest.

 

There will be student-to-student panels with current students about campus life, and a “successful first-year panel” for parents to ask about housing, counseling, career services, security and meal plans.  Students accepted to the School of Visual and Performing Arts will be invited to drive to the Westside campus for a tour of the new Visual and Performing Arts Center and other campus facilities.

 

Of the students who came to the university last year on Accepted Students Day, more than 80 percent ultimately enrolled. Since financial aid packages have not been awarded yet, many students still have not committed to any school.

 

Senior administrators, including the university president and provost, as well as deans and faculty representatives of every university department will be at the event.
