 Second Fall Open House Set for Nov. 11

10/31/2013 

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 SUNY Cortland’s second Fall Open House on Monday, Nov. 11.

The College will show off its campus during a regular day of classes to potential students who missed the first open house on Monday, Oct. 14. It was attended by approximately 750 students and their family members, said Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Management Mark Yacavone ’94.

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

The open house allows visitors who have made prior reservations the opportunity to experience the campus by interacting directly with students, faculty and staff. Individuals who have not pre-registered also are welcome to attend.

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

At 10:30 a.m., Professor of Economics Lisi Krall will give a presentation on the Honors Program in Park Center, Room 1204.

Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences Theresa Curtis will discuss pre-medical advisement at 1:15 p.m. in Bowers Hall, Room 236. Special sessions on admissions, financial aid, athletics, dining services, residence life and housing will be offered. For details, visit cortland.edu/admissions.

Open House visitors also are welcome to attend the Veterans Day Ceremony at 3 p.m. in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge. The ceremony features remarks by Army Cadet Joseph Ursitti, a senior political science major at SUNY Cortland. A reception in the Margaret A. “Peggy” Curry ’52 Main Lobby outside the lounge will follow.

Parking for Open House visitors will be provided in the Route 281 parking lot, which features  shuttle bus service to Park Center.

Yacavone noted that the fall format is much different from the Spring Open House, where most visitors already have been admitted and are in the process of deciding whether to attend SUNY Cortland.
