Open House Showcases Campus on Oct. 8

10/02/2012 

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 SUNY Cortland Fall Open House on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 8.

Most high school students have the day off from school. The College, however, has a regular day of classes, so interested individuals will get to realistic impression of what the campus is like, 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 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.

The program will formally begin at 9:30 a.m. in the 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.

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

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 the majority of the visitors already have been admitted and are in the process of deciding whether to attend SUNY Cortland.

A second Fall Open House for those who are unable to attend the first one is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 12.
