Central Penn will host a spring open house on campus on March 5 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The open house is designed for prospective students and their families, and registration is required.

The event includes a Knight Life Fair and What People Love about Central Penn presentations, and campus tours.

The Knight Life Fair will start the event. Prospective students can chat one-on-one with faculty and student-services staff while checking in and grabbing a snack or coffee.

According to Senior Events Planner Derek Whitesel, an addition to the open house is the alumni panel, with more recent Central Penn graduates. He said this will help prospective students visualize life after college.

The college admissions team will welcome the students and their families to discuss details about the college and admissions requirements. A financial-aid coordinator will review the financial-aid process, and provide general tips and suggested timelines for enrolling.

No livestreaming will be done.

Accommodating people who

don’t want to come to campus

According to Whitesel, Central Penn will host a virtual enrollment on Feb. 16 at 3 p.m., called College and Conversation. It will be done on Zoom Meeting and will include a presentation about the college, financial aid, a short virtual tour and a fun Valentine’s Day-themed game at the end.

“I would encourage anyone unable or uncomfortable with visiting the campus in-person on March 5 for the spring open house to sign up for that event,” Whitesel said.

People can participate in the meeting at https://www.centralpenn.edu/2022/01/10/college-and-conversation.

Keep in mind that Central Penn COVID-19 protocols require everyone to wear a mask when not socially distanced or when eating. People feeling ill should not come to campus.
