ATHENS, W.Va. –  The Office of Admissions at Concord University is hosting a number of opportunities this spring for prospective students and those already admitted to learn more about attending college on “The Campus Beautiful.”

“It’s going to be a busy spring at Concord, and we cannot wait to welcome folks to campus,” stated William Allen, Interim Vice President and Chief Enrollment Officer. “We are trying to offer students, at all stages of the admissions process, opportunities to get to campus for a visit. Hopefully, students will find an event that works for them.

“We also have quite a few groups coming to campus. If you have a group you’d like to bring to campus, contact Admissions,” he said.

Spring Preview Day will be held on Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon on Concord’s Athens campus. Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Student Center.

High school freshmen, sophomores and juniors are invited to attend the informational session for an opportunity to meet members of the Concord community, learn about the admissions process and academic programs, tour campus, and enjoy a complimentary lunch in the dining hall. High school seniors are welcome to attend to learn more about Concord before making a final decision regarding where to attend college.
