Unity College will hold a new student experience session on Saturday, April 20. Students who have already registered to attend as well as those who are interested in learning more about training for a cutting-edge environmental career will enjoy a variety of activities on campus. Transfer students are also welcome.
Many of the anticipated visitors for this new student event have either already made their deposit or are making a final decision about attending Unity this coming fall, though students who have previously not contacted the College are welcome.
“Those who have completed their applications are very excited about attending Unity College,” noted Emily Valli, Campus Visit Coordinator / Transfer Counselor. She added that applications are still being accepted and inquiries are welcome by contacting the Admissions Office at 1-800-624-1024.
Undecided students and those who have not yet applied for admissions will be presented with a full slate of engaging activities.
Visitors will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience about their intended major, with classroom sessions and meet-and-greet opportunities with professors and Unity College President Stephen Mulkey, a nationally recognized scientist.
Parents, family and friends will have an opportunity to learn about the growing worldwide green jobs market, environmental majors at Unity College, and cutting-edge environmental careers that are relevant to 21st century ecological problem solving during a question and answer (Q & A) session with faculty and administrators. The session will take place in the Parsons Wing of the Student Activities Center, Room 204, on the college campus from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 noontime.
Visitors are also invited to a meet-and-greet gathering at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts located at 42 Depot Street in Unity. Refreshments will be provided.
