yesterday was very busy with close to 100 people visiting the school of arts. thankfully it was on a saturday so the building was less busy then normal. everything ran smoothly just like it should and all our visitors seemed to enjoy themselves. Many traveled from far away and of course for many of them it was not the first school they have visited, so they know what to expect when they attend these open days. unfortunately for them they are getting closer to having to decide which school they would like to attend come the fall. Hopefully we made a great impression and they will consider us for next year. Our next visit day is on the 26th of March. hopefully it has beautiful weather like we did yesterday…
Today was another UCAS visit day, and if i do say so myself a successful one. we had some mix ups with some joint honors students but it got all sorted and the rest of the day ran smoothly thanks to our amazing ambassadors at the school of arts.
It still amazes me that some families are up at 5am to come and visit a school. But then again this is a big decision for them and especially their child. Its a place they will be at for 3 to 4 years, they need to feel at home here and be comfortable with the program they want to join. Coming to a visit day can really tell a perspective student if they enjoy the campus and the program enough to attend the uni.
Today was only one of two this week, victoria and i will be up and prepping for the next one on saturday first thing in the morning. Hopefully it will run just as smoothly ..
