Willimantic, Conn: The Office of Admissions at Eastern Connecticut State University will host Junior Preview Day on April 13 from noon to 4 p.m. in the Student Center. Juniors in high schools from across Connecticut and surrounding states, along with their families, are invited to visit campus to familiarize themselves with Eastern's unique public liberal arts learning experience.
"Eastern provides an affordable top quality undergraduate education, even for many from out-of state, that prepares students to begin their career or pursue graduate school," according to Ned Harris, director of enrollment management. "The university is able to do this," he said, "by pairing outstanding, diverse faculty with great students in small classes, undergraduate research and global field courses."
Eastern President Elsa M. Nunez will greet the students and their families. The program will provide information on Eastern's approach to applying one's academic pursuits in practice, admissions, financial aid, housing and residential life, athletics, student academic resources and student activities. Visitors will also have the opportunity take guided tours of campus with one of our student ambassadors.
