Christendom College will host a live Virtual Open House on Tuesday, May 26, from 1-3:00 pm EDT. Featuring presentations from the college’s academic dean and the admissions team, the event will offer students and parents the opportunity to learn about Christendom’s unique liberal arts education, Catholic campus culture, and more.
“Since many families are unable to make a physical visit to campus at this time, we want to ensure prospective students and parents have the opportunity to learn about Christendom’s fully Catholic liberal arts education and how it is preparing students to go out into the world to transform the culture and ‘restore all things in Christ,’” shared director of admissions Sam Phillips. “Our first virtual open house in April was well-attended and we were grateful for the positive feedback we received from participants, and so we decided to offer another event for those who may not have been able to attend the first one.”
Students and families who sign up for the Virtual Open House will be invited to an exclusive online webinar, powered by Zoom. The event will begin at 1:00 pm EDT, with Phillips providing an introduction. Following his introduction, academic dean Dr. Ben Reinhard will present on why Christendom’s core curriculum is so important.
At 1:30 pm, vice president for enrollment Tom McFadden will offer a presentation on alumni careers and the importance of choosing a Catholic college. Phillips will return for a presentation on financial aid, studying abroad, and extracurricular activities at 2:15 pm, and then Phillips and McFadden will take questions to close out the event.
For high school seniors who have never physically visited campus, the college is offering them a $300 tuition waiver for the fall, should they choose to attend.
Prospective students and their families are encouraged to take a virtual tour of campus, or to schedule an in-person visit throughout the summer months. Additionally, the college’s high school summer program – The Best WeekEver – will still be held for five one-week sessions this summer, with applications currently being accepted. Any current high school juniors are welcome to apply for the most popular, well-attended, and highly-ranked pre-college summer program of its kind.
