Gardner-Webb to Offer a First Look for Prospective Students and Families

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner-Webb University will host the first Dawg Day of the year this Saturday, Oct. 13 from 1 to 5 p.m. beginning in the Tucker Student Center. Dawg Days are free visitation days that allow future students to become familiar with the University and what it has to offer.

“It’s kind of like an open house,” said Elisabeth Edmonson, Event and Visit Coordinator for Undergraduate Admissions. Edmonson finds the event to be great for anyone interested in attending Gardner-Webb. “It not only allows potential students to get an intimate look at what Gardner-Webb is all about, but also gives them the chance to see the facilities and faces behind the University.”

The day will begin with checking in at the Tucker Student Center at 1 p.m. A number of breakout sessions will follow which include guided tours and explanations about admissions, athletics, and financial aid. A faculty fair will also be set up to familiarize the visitors with the academic departments and professors of their choice. If questions remain at the end of the day, question-and-answer sessions will be led by both faculty and student panels comprised of current members of the University. The day will provide future students with a fun and thorough outlook on Gardner-Webb as they start to make important college decisions.

For those thinking about making Gardner-Webb part of their future undergraduate career, registration is available online at www.gardner-webb.edu/futuredawgs through Friday night. There will be a sign in sheet upon Saturday’s check-in for unregistered visitors who would still like to attend.
