For students beginning their senior year of high school this fall, college is right around the corner. To help those students and their parents get a head start on college planning, Roosevelt University is holding a visit day on Saturday, June 22.
“Our visit day is a great opportunity to meet with faculty, staff and current students to learn about Roosevelt’s academic majors and extracurricular programs,” said Eric Tammes, associate vice president of communication and retention. “We’ll also have experts on hand who can answer everyone’s questions regarding the admission application process, applying for financial aid and scholarship opportunities.”
The Roosevelt visit day will be held from 9:30 a.m. until noon in the University’s dramatic new 32-story Wabash Building located at 425 S. Wabash Ave. in Chicago. A continental breakfast will be available beginning at 9.
The Wabash Building is the second tallest university structure in the country and has housing on the top 17 floors for more than 600 students, most of whom are freshmen. All of the rooms have breathtaking views of Chicago.
Tammes said people attending the visit day will be able to tour Roosevelt’s academic buildings and residence halls, attend admission and financial aid presentations in Spanish and meet current students, including members of the Lakerettes dance team.
In addition, there will be opportunities to learn about Roosevelt’s intercollegiate athletics program, career development activities, honors program and study abroad program.
“For students wanting to know what college life in downtown Chicago is all about, the June 22 visit day is the ideal place to find out,” Tammes said. Guests are invited to RSVP at www.roosevelt.edu/visitday .
