PINEVILLE (LCNews) — Louisiana College’s Preview Day attendance has seen exponential growth since 2014, growing from double- to triple-digits.
With more than 120 high school students registered for the March 24 event, Preview Day registration continues to steadily grow.
“We shifted the start time from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.,” said Vice President for Enrollment Management Fred Holt. “This makes Preview Day more convenient for our visitors who live several hours away from LC, such as those traveling from neighboring states or southeast Louisiana.”
Previous days have drawn people from Colorado, California, Nevada, and as far away as Hawaii.
“The growing awareness of Louisiana College’s turnaround is one reason for the increasing Preview Day attendance,” said LC President Rick Brewer. “Our innovative strategies of a flat rate tuition, creative scholarships, and the history of our outstanding academics all have intersected to bring the college further into a favorable light. These, among other reasons, are why our total enrollment for this spring is 18 percent more than last spring.”
High school students of all grades, as well as transfer students, may attend Preview Day, which provides an overview of campus and academic life.
Preview Day includes extensive information on academics, scholarships, financial aid, and overviews of the opportunities for athletics, ministry, and international study programs.
Students will also meet faculty and current students, enjoy a campus tour, and have the evening meal in LC’s cafeteria.
Check-in will be at 1 p.m. in front of the Martin Performing Arts Center, with a rain location in the Hixson Student Center. Register now by calling 800.487.1906, or visit www.lacollege.edu/previewday to register online.
High school seniors who bring a completed LC application to Preview Day will not be required to pay an application fee.
