This fall, prospective students have a multitude of opportunities to visit and learn more about Geneva College. Geneva’s admissions team has planned an array of events that provide diverse experiences to high school students so that they can find out more about the college first-hand.
“We tell college-bound high school students that the best way to learn about Geneva is to experience it for yourself,” says Assistant Director of Admissions Roger Blevins. “It's incredibly beneficial to talk to our faculty, staff, students and other people involved on campus to get that first-hand experience.”
Discovery Days are scheduled throughout the semester. They provide students with a time to meet current Geneva faculty and students related to their major, tour the campus, sit-in on a class and meet with coaches and staff from campus departments. Dates for fall semester Discovery Days are September 12, October 10, October 13, November 14 and November 21.
