Grove City College’s Admissions Office is offering a virtual Junior Preview Program and live event on May 30 for prospective students who can’t visit campus in person because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Although we cannot recreate all of the experiences high school juniors typically have at the on-campus event, we felt we needed to let them know that they are not alone in their college search season,” Lynise Massella, admissions event manager, said. “We have created a digital resource page that they can visit at their convenience to get to know Grove City College better and to help us get to know them.”
The program includes an on-demand video series which can be accessed on the website at any time. This series offers videos highlighting a current student panel, college search strategies, financial aid information and a residence hall sneak peek.
In addition, prospective students can schedule a one-on-one Q&A session, interview, meeting with a faculty member and a financial aid representative.
From 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, College President Paul J. McNulty ‘80 will be talking to prospective students and families through a live virtual event. McNulty will share more about the College’s deep-rooted community and introduce future students to some key leaders on campus representing academics, spiritual life, residence life, campus involvement and the Career Services Office, which is ranked 12th in the nation by The Princeton Review.
“Finally, and perhaps most important for prospective students is the opportunity to connect with current students for a Q&A session to get an insider’s perspective on what makes Grove City special,” Massella said.
The Admissions Office will also be giving away prizes during the event. Register online today on for this unique event and check out the already available resources at www.gcc.edu/juniorpreview.
