KEYSER, W.Va. — West Virginia University’s Discover Potomac State Day events are designed to help prospective students explore the possibilities of college life and set their sights on the future.
The next Discover Potomac State Day will be held Feb. 17 with lunch and a gift provided to all participants who attend the free event.
“It’s your day to Discover Potomac State. Ask questions of our faculty and staff, chat with current students and tour our beautiful campus. We’ll help you find your path while getting a taste of college life. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals, so we want you to have the best college experience possible,” said Beth Little, dean of enrollment management and university relations.
Registration with refreshments kicks off from 9 to 9:30 a.m. in the Church-McKee Arts Center, followed by a welcome from the president. Participants then move onto information stations and the academic and information fairs located around campus.
Application reviews, along with on-the-spot admission decisions, will be made, so visitors are encouraged to bring their high school or college transcripts with them. Participating students who have already applied for admission and those students that apply during the event will be entered into a $500 tuition scholarship drawing. All participants will have the opportunity to win a $500 book scholarship as well.
