Potential WWU students welcomed to campus

Potential WWU students welcomed to campus

February 13th, 2018 by Jenny Gray in Local News

Baylie Borman, senior class president at William Woods University, prepares to lead a line of new WWU students across the Senior Lake bridge in the school's traditional ivy ceremony. Students also attended a convocation ceremony during which professor Travis Tamerius told them not to worry about their parents. "Your parents will be OK, I promise. It's quite possible they'll move to a beach house somewhere," he said sarcastically.

In about a week, potential William Woods students are invited to the campus to see and hear about offerings there.

William Woods University Discovery Days will be Monday, and another will be offered March 23.

People can register for day long activity at williamwoods.edu/events/2018/02/discovery-day-feb.html.

The day will kick off as people gather at Dulany Auditorium. The group will walk over to the equestrian complex for a tour at 8:15-9 a.m. to learn about offerings and meet the college's 150-plus horses. Registration for that phase opens at 7:45 a.m. at Dulaney.

Regular campus tours will depart Dulany at 9 a.m. and end up at Tucker Dining Hall at 10 a.m. Jahnae H. Barnett, president of the college, will give a Welcome to the Woods at 10 a.m. at Dulany.

A student involvement panel will also be offered as well as a 45-minute lunch. More tours continue into the afternoon.

People with questions can call Darus Brondel at 573-592-4238 or Ashley Sundin at 573-592-4400.
