The third try is always the best…

Today I took over most of the responsibilities when it comes to the actual day of the UCAS Visit days. I think I finally got the hang of what needs to be done and when during the day. The ambassadors and I had everything ready to go with in 15 minutes of them showing up. They really know what to do when it comes to visit days.. which is a good thing we wouldn’t be able to do it with out them. We had all the signs up and lunches ready and we didn’t have anybody completly lost about where they are supposed to be.

We had a large number of perspective students show up today. 20 alone in the drama department!! hopefully our numbers will keep rising and have plenty of new kent students show up next fall.

We have a week and a half to get ready for the next visits. The first ones in march are in the same week. one on wednesday and one on saturday. Hopefully they will run as smoothly as this one has .

come rain, wind and massive delays the visit day must go on!!

Today was our second UCAS visit day of the year. We had more visitors come then in our first go around, but do to the weather and the M2 being closed because of a sink hole some did not show. which is completly understandable. however the ambassadors, VIctoria and i worked hard to lead the students in the right direction and of course to give them the best experience we could.

We served them lunch where they had the opportunity to chat with ambassadors and staff about their subject. Then they had time to learn about the programs a little bit more and then even have a taster session of what a class could consist of.

we certainly had a good time and we are hoping that our visitors did too and that they get home safely. our next visit day is on the 26th of February hopefully the weather will be more forgiving by then..
