June 21, 2001 — The Counseling and Placement Office of the University of the Virgin Islands in coordination with the School-to-Work Program is pleased to announce three open house programs to be held June 28, July 12, and July 19 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The UVI – St. Croix campus open house is an opportunity for junior and senior high school students and their parents to learn more about the advantages of attending college, current trends in university life, admissions and financial aid procedures, and how students can best prepare for their college years. A picture is worth a thousand words and hope that by getting 7th-12th graders to visit UVI they will be better able to picture themselves in college.
The Open House will include:
– Welcome
– Panel Presentation
– Director of Admissions – What Colleges Seek, How Students Can Prepare
– Director of Financial Aid – Financing a College Education; What Students and Parents Should Know
– Student Affairs – Social Life on campus, Living away from home, Clubs, Sports, Safety
– University Professor – Characteristics of a Successful College Student
– Student Guided Tour
– Student Panel Discussion – Current UVI Students and UVI Grads Speak Out about their Greatest Challenges, Value of a College Education, and How to Best Prepare for College.
The St. Croix campus of UVI would like to help to "plant the seed" of further education beyond high school early. Teenagers as young as 13 need to realize that their studies in school provide an important foundation on which to build their future. To register for the Open House please call Ms. Robin S. Groelle, Counseling and Placement Supervisor, at 692-4187.
