Spring Open House This Saturday at Gannon University

Posted: April 25, 2014

With high school graduations just a month away, this is a prime opportunity to talk to prospective college students and their parents about a timely subject: education and students' future prospects.

At Open House, prospective students get a first-hand look at Gannon's programs, campus and people. They will take in departmental presentations across campus and enjoy campus tours that this year will include new facilities such as the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, now nearing the end of a $15 million expansion, the School of Communications and the Arts, which is being renovated at the corner of W. Seventh and Peach Street, and the Forensic Investigation Center on W. Sixth St., that was dedicated on Friday. Potential students can also explore high-tech laboratories and classrooms, meet with faculty and current students from each academic discipline, learn about the admissions and financial aid presentation and so much more.

The event formally kicks off with a welcome inside the Hammermill Center at 11:30 a.m. when Gannon University President Keith Taylor, Ph.D. will welcome visitors to campus. Registration begins at 10 a.m., as does a campus community and resource fair in the Yehl Room of the adjacent Waldron Campus Center, 124 W. Seventh St. The first of two information sessions begins at 10:45 (the second begins at noon) in the Waldron Campus Center, and the day concludes with an academic expo in the main buildings used by the University's three academic Colleges: the Palumbo Academic Center, 824 Peach Street (College of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences), the Robert H. Morosky Academic Center, 150 W. 10th St. (Morosky College of Health Professions and Sciences) and the Zurn Science Center, 143 W. Seventh St. (College of Engineering and Business).
