ATHENS, W.Va. – Prospective students and those already admitted to Concord University are invited to join upcoming “Zoom in on CU” events this spring. The free virtual information sessions give students who cannot easily make it to campus for an in-person visit an opportunity to learn more about attending college on “The Campus Beautiful.”

Hosted by Concord’s Office of Admissions, the sessions are conducted by admissions counselors and campus staff and cover a wide range of topics concerning life at Concord. During the session on Tuesday, April 5, current Concord students will answer questions from newly admitted students. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The “Zoom in on CU” for Tuesday, May 10 will provide information for high school juniors who want to learn more about Concord. This virtual event is being held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

To register and for more information on either “Zoom in on CU” event please visit www.concord.edu/admissions/visit. Participants will then be sent the Zoom address and further details.

Another option for students who can’t visit campus, but want to learn more about Concord University is a virtual tour. The online tour offers prospective students, parents and educators a 360 degree look at Concord’s buildings, grounds and additional features. Clickable features encourage tour participants to explore the campus and learn interesting facts about the University.

Visitors have the option to submit a request to learn more, schedule a visit or apply online. To take the virtual tour of Concord’s campus, visit www.concord.edu/Admissions/Visit/Video-Tour.aspx.

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.
