Future students to Experience Acadia March 9
If a first impression is lasting, then Acadia hopes to a make a good one when hundreds of future students visit campus this Friday, March 9.
Students from across Nova Scotia and some from as far away as Vermont will arrive in the morning for Experience Acadia Day 2012 to get an inside look at university life. In addition to welcomes, presentations, and mini lecture halls, students will be treated to lunch and offered on-the-spot admission and assistance with course registration.
For fun, they will form teams and compete in an Acadia-version of The Amazing Race – running around campus to gather clues as they compete for prizes.
“Making the decision to attend a university can be a difficult process,” says Leigh-Ann Murphy, manager of Student Recruitment. “At Acadia, we like to make it simple and straightforward. Attending an information session lets students and their families not only understand what Acadia can offer, but how they can make a smooth transition and embark on the next step in their education.”
