One hundred one prospective students representing 17 states attended Fall 2013 Welcome Days November 7-9, at Welch College, according to Debbie Mouser, director of enrollment services.
The 70 young ladies and 31 young men who visited the campus attended classes and chapel and interacted with current Welch students. Seniors, parents, and sponsors also met with President Matt Pinson during a Friday morning reception.
The visiting students toured the campus, enjoyed a time of comedy and entertainment with area youth minster Jon Forrest, and closed out the night cheering on the Welch College Flames basketball teams and playing dodgeball.
Exit evaluations completed by visiting students indicated that for well over half, this marked their first visit to Welch College. The students praised the hospitality and helpfulness of the Welch College faculty, staff, and students during their visit.
Mrs. Mouser said, “I was very pleased with the number of visitors on campus for Welcome Days and am thankful we had the opportunity to present Welch College to them. This marks the highest number of visiting students for a Fall Welcome Days in quite some time. We look forward to future correspondence with these students, parents, and sponsors as they consider this important step.”
Welch College will host Senior Days February 6-7, 2014 and Spring Welcome Days April 17-19, 2014. For more information, contact the Enrollment Management Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
