The Warner School of Education is hosting a big event on Saturday November 21st: our fall open house! If you recall applying to various schools as a prospective undergraduate student, you’ll remember how open houses were filled to the brim with activities: information sessions, meetings with professors, and tours were just some of the available options. But does attending an open house at the graduate level offer similar incentives? Here are some proceedings for Saturday that you won’t want to miss:
- Introductions from both our Dean and Director of Admissions. Raffaella Borasi and Pam Black-Colton will be speaking in a section entitled “Why Warner?” I attended an event for accepted students last year, and I enjoyed hearing about the benefits of Warner from the administration’s perspective.
- Alumni/student panel. These will be featuring students from our Master’s and Doctoral programs, and are generally held in an open forum setting. Ask away!
- Breakout groups in each Master’s and Doctoral subject area. During these sessions, you’ll meet with faculty members from the Warner specialization you’re interested in.
- Tours. Warner students attend courses in LeChase Hall, which is fairly new and was opened in 2013. You’ll get to see our classrooms, specialized technology rooms, study areas, and overall creative and collaborative learning environment. Other buildings frequented by Warner students include the library, Wilson Commons, some of the residence halls (particularly by graduate resident assistants), and Lattimore Hall.
Register here! We hope to see you there.
