Over 80 people – high school students and their families – attended Christendom's Fall Open House this past Monday, October 10, The Family Visit Day event, intended to be an informative open house for local students, drew students from several states, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Alabama.

The visiting families toured campus, attended classes, spoke with faculty, and heard from the Director of Admissions, Tom McFadden, and a student panel.

"Many people already think they know all about Christendom College, and, therefore, think that they do not need to make a visit to our campus," says Admissions Director Tom McFadden. "But we have found that what people think they know about Christendom, and what Christendom really is, are sometimes very different. A visit really helps the prospective student get a better understanding of our unique educational apostolate."

The Family Visit Day provides an opportunity for high school students and their families to conduct a preliminary campus visit, which is essential before or during the application process. Already, the Admissions Office has plans for another Family Visit Day to be held on President's Day, February 20, 2012.
