Second Fall Open House Set for Nov. 12

 Second Fall Open House Set for Nov. 12

11/06/2012 

More than 600 prospective college students are expected to spend a day visiting academic departments, touring the campus and talking to faculty and students during the second SUNY Cortland Fall Open House on Monday, Nov. 12.

The College will show off its campus during a regular day of classes to potential students who missed the first fall Open House on Oct. 8. It was attended by approximately 600 students and their family members, said Admissions Director Mark Yacavone.

Faculty, staff and students from academic departments and student service offices will be available to meet with visitors throughout the day. Additionally, guests may tour the campus and eat in the dining facilities.

Open House allows visitors the opportunity to experience the campus by interacting directly with students, faculty and staff. The visitors have made prior reservations with the Admissions Office to be on campus that day.

The program will formally begin at 9:30 a.m. in Park Center. An academic fair, featuring department faculty, and a student services fair, with student services representatives, will take place in Park Center Corey Gymnasium from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. At 12:30 p.m., students are encouraged to proceed to their chosen academic department offices for more information and a tour.

Guided tours of the campus and residence halls will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Participants will meet in the Corey Union Function Room.

Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences Theresa Curtis will give a presentation on pre-medical advisement at 1:15 p.m. in Bowers Hall, Room 236.

Open House visitors also are welcome to attend the Veterans Day Ceremony at 3 p.m. in the park Center Hall of Fame Room.

Special sessions on admissions, financial aid, Honors Program, athletics, dining services and residential services also will be offered that day. For details, visit the website at cortland.edu/admissions.

Parking for Open House visitors will be provided at the Professional Studies Building lot, formerly called the Studio West lot, and the Route 281 parking lot, which has shuttle bus service to Park Center.

Yacavone noted that the fall format is much different from the spring Open House, in which the majority of the visitors already have been admitted and are in the process of deciding whether to attend SUNY Cortland. By contrast, at the fall Open House, the visitors are in an earlier stage of choosing a college.
