The changing colors of the season on campus provided the perfect backdrop for Daemen University’s annual Fall Open House as we welcomed a steady crowd of prospective students starting their college searches.
The premier event on October 15 drew students and parents from across Western New York who experienced first-hand all that Daemen has to offer, with campus tours, introductions to faculty and academic programs, and other events throughout the day.
“The open house and tours are so important because prospective students can see our campus in-person and, more importantly, see themselves here, helping create a sense of belonging,” explained Yolanda Morris, director of admissions events and special programs at Daemen. “Our goal was, and always is, to welcome students here for this wonderful experience and make them want to come back.”
While touring campus during the open house, guests were able to meet with volunteers and current students to gain an inside perspective about student life, service learning, residence halls, clubs and organizations, and more. They even got to sample the food at Daemen.
Academic sessions introduced the students to a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs from more than 65 majors at Daemen and faculty members were on hand to discuss specific programs. Students and their families also had the opportunity to attend financial aid information sessions, and presentations on early decision benefits, as well as scholarship information.
Morris noted that the Open House is an anchor in that it leads to more significant events throughout the year to engage students, including Scholars Day and Accepted Students Day.
A Virtual Open House is scheduled for October 25 in which prospective students can speak with Daemen representatives, admissions team members and current students remotely. To receive more information and to register for the virtual event.
