Prospective students and their families traveled from across America to take part in Christendom’s first open house of the academic year on October 12. Experiencing first-hand Christendom’s personalized academic attention and robust liberal arts education, the visitors were given the unique opportunity to attend classes, tour the campus, listen to presentations, and get an authentic taste of what everyday life is like at Christendom.
“We offer an exceptional and unique educational experience that you really need to come to experience for yourself — something that our open house program, and our visit program in general, helps every interested student achieve,” says vice president for enrollment Tom McFadden.
Due to the importance of the college decision, the admissions office encourages students to take advantage of the many ways in which they can learn more about Christendom’s Catholic liberal arts program. The fall and spring open houses offer a glimpse into life at the college, and give visitors easy access to college president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, academic dean Mark Wunsch, admissions director Sam Phillips, and vice president for enrollment Tom McFadden. Each of these delivered insightful presentations and answered questions.
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.
The next fall open house will be held on Friday, November 13, although prospective students may make personal visits at other times between now and the end of the semester, or attend one of the college’s spring open houses, as well.
