Albany State is opening its doors to college-bound high school students to give them a first-hand look at the benefits of becoming a Golden Ram. The fall 2013 campus visitation begins with registration at noon, Saturday, Sept. 21, in the ACAD Auditorium.
An estimated 200 students, including groups form Laurens, Wilkinson and Clarke counties will meet current students, alumni, administrators, faculty, and staff. The campus visitors will also receive an overview of academic programs, financial aid resources and review the college application process.
“This is an excellent opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to visit the Albany State University campus as they prepare for their post-secondary education. We also look forward to meeting parents, because experience has taught us that they too, play an integral role in student success,” said ASU Associate Director of Admissions Fred Suttles.
The students will tour the campus and are invited to attend the football clash between the ASU Golden Rams and the Elizabeth City State Vikings at 7 p.m. in the ASU Coliseum.
