Prospective Western New Mexico University students can visit campus for free on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Open House hosted by the WNMU Office of Admissions will showcase campus life and educate future Mustangs about degree options and financial aid opportunities.
The Open House is the annual fall event during which students from high schools and community colleges can sample WNMU’s offerings.
“We know Western New Mexico University is a great choice for students in our regional area, and we’re excited to open up our campus to them and their families for a day of learning and exploring,” Student Services Coordinator Devin Stroman said.
The Open House includes a tour of the new student apartment facility in Mustang Village, an introductory walk around WNMU’s cornerstone buildings, and an academic showcase, where visitors will have the chance to meet professors and learn more about each department and discipline. Attendees will get a Mustang T-shirt and free lunch at the café on campus.
WNMU will waive the fee for any admission applications received from Open House participants on the day of the event. In addition, students are encouraged to bring their transcripts so admissions officers can evaluate them and see if they qualify for any scholarships, which will be awarded on the spot.
Following the open house, attendees can stick around for the optional FAFSA Workshop, where they can get help filling out applications to receive federal financial aid opportunities for the upcoming school year.
Also, at 7 p.m., Open House visitors can opt to see a movie in Light Hall for free.
“The Open House is a wonderful chance for students and families to get to know other incoming Mustangs,” Stroman said.
