imageNearly 400 visitors attended the first two specialty admissions programs of the semester, with hundreds more expected for future dates.

The Sciences Information Program on March 4 brought about 170 visitors, between prospective students and family members, to SUNY Oswego to tour science facilities and meet with faculty and current students. The School of Education Information Program on May 7 brought around 230 more attendees for an introduction to the opportunities available to those interested in majoring in education.

The Department of Communication Studies Information Program is next on the horizon for the lakeside college, slated for Monday, March 28. A program for potential School of Business students is on the books for Friday, April 1.

Transfer Open House will take place on Saturday, April 9. The college-wide Open House—the largest admissions program of the year—will fill campus on Monday, April 11. Admitted Student Day activities on Saturday, April 23, will be the last large-scale program of the semester, but regular group and individual sessions for prospective students continue on a weekly basis throughout the year.
