Nearly 100 Prospective Students Sample Notre Dame College Campus on Presidents' Day

Members of the Notre Dame College community commonly see visitors touring campus throughout the school year, but on Presidents’ Day, February 18, more than 90 prospective students came ─ with their family members─ to explore the institution.

The annual spring campus visit and open house welcomed a large group of students, from freshmen to seniors in high school, according to Beth Ford, dean of admissions and financial aid. Adding in prospective students’ friends and family, nearly 200 people sampled campus life on the Presidents’ Day holiday.

 Students from all over Ohio came for a sneak peek of the College. Those interested in attending Notre Dame hailed from major cities in Ohio, including Toledo, Youngstown, Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati.

During the day, prospective students talked one-on-one with faculty, staff, advisors and coaches. Admission counselors were available to advise the visitors about scholarships and financial aid. College student ambassadors led campus tours, and the prospective students and their families shared lunch from Normandy Catering in the Keller Center.

Ford said in addition to the increased number of visitors to campus, this visit day was especially successful because the entire College community, including faculty and staff, came together to celebrate the personal interaction, academic opportunity and professional responsibility that make Notre Dame the special place that it is. Professors from all academic divisions on campus took part in making the day a major success.

“Every time a prospective student visits Notre Dame College, members of the campus community come together and offer their time and talents to welcome them,” Ford said. “But open houses like the Presidents’ Visit Day are especially exciting because of the tremendous response from so many faculty, staff and current students who are all eager to share the positive energy of Notre Dame with our visitors. So many people coming together at one time is especially powerful.”
