MOUNT VERNON— Brewton-Parker College’s new Campus Visit Program begins this summer for those interested in spending a day on the beautiful Mount Vernon campus and experience the life of a Baron.
The Office of Admissions invites high school juniors and seniors to come to campus to attend a class, interact with current students, faculty and staff and learn about the higher education opportunities at BPC.
All visits begin and end at the Admissions Office in the Palmer Building, located off the front circle. Visit days are every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., except for campus holidays and as scheduling allows.
A student-led walking tour begins the day and lasts approximately 45 minutes. Students will see classrooms, a dorm room, the library, the campus store and other areas that current students call home. Students are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.
According to the Office of Admissions, one of the best ways to explore academic life is to sit in a class.
“You’ll have an opportunity to meet our dynamic professors and to interact with your future classmates. You will get first-hand impressions of the level of instruction you can expect here at BPC,” said Jennifer Blaylock, Admissions administrative assistant.
Students attending on Tuesday will have the option to attend Chapel Services.
Lunch in the Residential Restaurant or Cyber Café, both in the Phillips Student Center, is included in the visit at no cost to the student.
An Academic Session is available in each degree program; Brewton-Parker offers 18 majors and 27 minors. This allows students the opportunity to ask questions and get to know the faculty member who will help them achieve their degree goals.
The day will end with sessions in BPC’s Financial Aid Office and Admissions Office. These sessions will provide students opportunities to ask questions about financial aid options and how to begin the admissions process.
Each student attending the campus visit program must register individually so the college can provide the best possible visit experience. Go online to http://www.bpc.edu/admissions/BPCsVisitDayProgram.htm or call Blaylock at 912-583-3210 to register today.
