Eastern Mennonite University invites students to visit the campus in person or virtually during the state’s annual Virginia Private College Week from July 25-20.
Any student who visits EMU can apply for free. In addition, those who visit at least three colleges will be entered in a drawing to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.
EMU will offer daily campus tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid and academic programs.
In-person tours and info sessions will be offered the following days and times:
- From Monday, July 25 to Friday, July 29, at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily.
- On Saturday, July 30, at 9 a.m.
A virtual tour and info session is scheduled for Tuesday, July 26, at 7 p.m.
“Virginia Private College Week is a terrific opportunity for students and families to visit multiple stellar schools across Virginia, submit several free applications, and start discovering the school where they feel connected and at home,” said Luke Litwiller, director of admissions. “Our admissions team is very excited to welcome students and families for these special visits!”
Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process, added Robert Lambeth, president of the CICV.
CICV was founded in 1971 to promote the interests of nonprofit, independent higher education in Virginia. The council was also instrumental in starting the state’s Tuition Assistance Grant program.
“I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach,” said Lambeth.
