We hosted a Discover Day last Friday, bringing prospective students and their families to campus for a day to “kick the tires” as they make their college choice. We had a large group attend last week, and Suzanne Sullivan and Amanda Slaughter, along with our admissions team do a marvelous job enabling these families to get the most out of their visit.
The dates of up coming Discover Days are: October 24, November 14, February 13, March 6, March 27, an April 17. Following each of these visit days, we ask the prospective students and parents for their comments, and below are some of the remarks from last week:
I was extremely impressed with the emphasis in worldview. The mindset of the teachers is the same in all departments. That is one of the most important aspects. The level of commitment of this school to the students’ knowledge beyond what we would normally learn in our studies is eyeopening. I could go on for hours. Belhaven is my #1 choice thus far.
The amount of time the dance department head (Mrs. Newland) spent speaking with us helped us get a feel for the type of character and quality of those who will direct our daughter’s college career. We thank her for that. She seems to be very caring and involved. It is hard to get a feel for someone’s character from a picture on the school’s website. We appreciate the planning that went into the Discovery Day schedule. Having a full schedule allowed us to get a good overall assessment of Belhaven without wasting our time.
My visit sealed the deal with regards to which college I most want to attend. Tuition is the only thing keeping me from going at this point. I’m only a junior, so were going to work on lots of scholarships. 🙂
I loved it. Everyone was so nice. The campus is so beautiful. It was so much fun, and I am so glad I went.
