Illinois College invites college-bound students and their families to visit the campus during Spring Preview Days being planned in February and March.
Each event is designed for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in beginning or furthering their college search. The two remaining open houses will be held on Monday, February 20, which is President’s Day; and Monday, March 19.
“This spring is the perfect time to tour our beautiful campus,” campus visitor coordinator Pam Birdsell explained. “We look forward to getting to know prospective students and their parents, and to provide answers to a variety of questions regarding all aspects of the Illinois College experience.”
Registration will take place in the Caine Student Center starting at 10:30 a.m. Before registration visitors have the option of meeting with members of the Office of Intercollegiate Athletics staff. Beginning at 10 a.m. coaches will share information about the 20 varsity sports sponsored by the college and provide details on intramural opportunities for students. Time will also be set aside for prospective students and parents to enjoy a complimentary lunch and meet with Illinois College faculty to learn more about the college’s 45 majors and pre-professional programs.
Visitors will also benefit from a presentation on the admission process and the opportunities for financial aid and scholarships available to all students. A tour of the campus, with visits to residence halls, Schewe Library, academic buildings and the Bruner Fitness and Recreation Center, as well as an academic fair, will be on the preview day agenda.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact the Illinois College Office of Admission in advance at 217.245.3030 to register for the free programs. Registration can also be completed online at http://www.ic.edu/previewdays
