Open House October 27

Posted October 11, 2013

Western New England University will host high school students and their parents at an open house on Sunday, October 27 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The event is free, but advance reservation is requested by calling 1-800-325-1122, ext. 1312, or 413-782-1312.

Students and parents will have the chance to tour the campus, explore the breadth of academic programs, attend a session on the first year experience, learn about financial aid options, and chat informally with faculty, support staff, coaches, and students. A highlight of the day is a student panel discussion where current students share their insights on campus culture and first year transitions.

In conjunction with the Open House, students interested in learning more about a degree in Social Work are invited to attend the Social Work Informational Luncheon where prospective students will meet with faculty, alumni, and current students. Participants will explore professional career options with a Social Work degree and will learn about the program’s four internships, which begin in the first semester of freshman year.
