Following a welcome session in the main arena of the Ramsey Center from 10 to 10:30 a.m., prospective students will have a chance to engage in academic sessions led by WCU faculty members from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m.

Lunch will be available at all campus dining locations. Students attending Open House will receive a voucher for a free lunch that can be redeemed at Courtyard Dining Hall or A.K. Hinds University Center.

Afternoon activities will include general tours of campus, an opportunity to visit a WCU residence hall and a variety of information sessions addressing topics such as paying for college.
