Ashland sets academic-themed days for summer

The Ashland University Office of Admissions has partnered with all academic departments on campus and will provide interactive Summer Visit Programs that will allow prospective students to investigate the college majors and careers which they are considering.

“The summer 2012 visit days are set up to allow prospective students to experience Ashland University in a number of ways, including spending time with faculty and students as well as asking questions of admissions representatives,” said W.C. Vance, director of undergraduate admissions. “These programs are more comprehensive than traditional campus visits because of the heavy academic and career component.”

Vance said the Summer Visit Programs also will include a campus tour as well as an overview of scholarships and next steps for students considering Ashland University.

“These unique summer events will allow prospective students and their parents to explore college majors that will help guide the students to career choices after graduation,” he said.

The Summer Visit Programs schedule is as follows:

Exploring Careers in Health – Friday, July 13, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Exploring Careers in Education – Monday, July 16, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Exploring Careers in Business – Friday, July 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Exploring Careers in Sports – Friday, July 27, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Exploring Careers in Arts – Friday, Aug. 3, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Exploring Careers in Law and Service Professions – Friday, Aug. 10, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
