The next generation of potential Christendom students visited campus this past week for the college’s first open house event of the semester. Arriving just in time to witness the beauty of Christendom in the spring, high school students, and their families, were given the unique opportunity to attend classes, tour the campus, listen to presentations, and experience an authentic taste of what everyday life is like at Christendom.
“We had a great group of prospective students come to visit us this past week. Christendom offers an exceptional and unique, educational experience that you need to come to see, and experience for yourself — something that our open house program, and our visit program in general, helps every interested student achieve,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips.
“Our generous set of college visit offerings help each and every person who is interested in Christendom have the opportunity to see what life is like here. College is a big consideration, and we want everyone be as well informed as possible,” says Phillips. “Coming to one of our open house events is a big step towards achieving that goal.”
One of the most appealing aspects of a Christendom education is the college’s commitment to the liberal arts. As noted in many recent surveys and news articles, a liberal arts education is becoming more and more in demand. Christendom’s emphasis on writing, communication skills, analytical thought, and critical thinking empowers its students to achieve greatness post-graduation. Gaining a broad education, with the ability to see the big picture and to become a conceptualizer, sets liberally educated Christendom students apart from their peers.
Prospective students were able to experience what Christendom is like during a typical day by sitting in on classes, mingling with the student body, faculty, and staff at lunch in St. Lawrence Commons, and listening to presentations by college president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, director of admissions Sam Phillips, and academic dean Mark Wunsch.
The last open house of the semester will be held on May 1, although prospective students may make personal visits at other times between now and the end of the semester, or attend the most-popular, well-attended, and highly-ranked Experience Christendom Summer Program, by contacting the admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.877.5456, ext 1292.
