74 ° Fair
Quality, affordability of private higher education highlighted July 28-Aug. 2
News Release | July 8, 2014
While websites, brochures, and the recommendations of friends are definitely helpful, visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process. Prospective Virginia Wesleyan students are invited to tour campus July 28–August 2 during Virginia Private College Week, hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).
Along with other participating CICV colleges, throughout the week VWC will offer campus tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid and academic programs. College officials will also address some common myths about the cost of a private college education. Students who visit at least three institutions during the week will receive three application fee waivers, which may be used to apply to any participating CICV colleges for free.
“I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter,” explains Robert Lambeth, President of CICV. “And I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach.”
Virginia Wesleyan information sessions and campus tours will be held July 28-August 1 (Monday-Friday) at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and on Saturday, August 2 at 9 a.m. Appointments can be made by registering online or calling 757.455.3208 or 1.800.737.8684.
