On Friday, April 11-Saturday, April 12, 79 students and many of their family members visited Central Penn College for Closer Look Weekend 2014! All of the visiting students had already been accepted to the college and were there to get their closer look at college life and life at Central Penn. Some came just for the day, but many stayed overnight on campus paired up with a current student!
- “Get to Know your College” session with the cultural immersion program, student activities, athletics, and more
- Team building activities like getting student ID pictures taken with security, two truths and a lie, participating in a professional attire relay race, name games, and more
- Playing a Choose your Own Adventure: College Edition game to learn about first-term college decision making
- Roommate roulette, where many students matched themselves up with future roommates!
- Financial aid sessions
- Parent workshops
- Reception with future students and their families, current student hosts, and Central Penn faculty and staff
- Bowling at Trindle Bowl
- Photo booth fun
- Knight Nation After Dark with ice cream, board games, and awesome prizes
- Placement exams
- Basketball and volleyball pick-up games with current student athletes and coaches
- Lawn party behind the campus apartments
- Breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner – yummy food all weekend!
- Great bonding time between future Central Penn students all weekend long!
Everyone had a great time – future students, current students, families, the admissions team, and all of the faculty and staff who were part of the weekend.
For accepted students who weren’t able to make it to Closer Look Weekend, stay tuned – we’ll have Fall Campus Preview, an orientation day just for fall students, on August 1!
