SUNY Cortland Hosts Second Fall Open House on Nov. 11

10/28/2009 

Approximately 700 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 Veterans Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11.

The College will show off its campus on a regular day of classes to potential students who missed the first Fall Open House, attended by 920 students and their family members on Oct. 12, 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 houses allow 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 10 a.m. in the 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 10 a.m.-noon. 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 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Participants will meet in the Corey Union Function Room.

Honors Program Coordinator Arnold Talentino will offer an overview of the College’s Honors Program at 11:45 a.m. in Corey Union, Room 209. Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences Theresa Curtis will give a presentation on pre-medical advisement at 1 p.m. in Bowers Hall, Room 239. Special sessions on admissions, financial advisement, athletics, dining services and residential services also will be offered that day. For details, visit the Web site at cortland.edu/admissions.

Parking for the Open House visitors will be provided at Studio West and 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 have already been admitted and are in the process of deciding to attend SUNY Cortland. By contrast, at the Fall Open House, the visitors get to see the campus while the students are in class.
