Admissions Hosts Fall Events for Prospective Students, Transfers
The Office of Admissions is gearing up for a busy fall with open house events, information presentations and more for students considering SUNY Plattsburgh as their school of choice freshman year or for those considering transferring in.
Group sessions are a great way for prospective students to meet others who are looking at SUNY Plattsburgh. Group sessions are held on Mondays, Fridays, select Saturdays and during holidays and school break weeks.
Presentations include academic highlights, student life information, and the admissions process. Students will be able to participate in a question-and-answer session, go on campus tours that show off classrooms, residence halls and more. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to meet one on one with admissions advisers, who can answer more specific questions.
Monday and Friday sessions are held throughout the fall. Select Saturday events are:
- 13 and 27
School holidays are:
- 10 and 11 (Rosh Hashanah)
- 6 (Election Day)
- 12 (Veteran’s Day
Admissions also holds two open house events in the fall. This year’s open houses are scheduled Saturday, Oct. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 17, both events beginning at 10 a.m. with an admissions presentation highlighting academics, student life, and the admissions process.
Students interested in attending will have the chance to participate in academic break-out sessions with faculty and students for specific program areas. Tours of campus that showcase classrooms, dining facilities, residence halls and more will be given, and a student-service fair will introduce prospective students to programs and activities available.
