BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— Gardner-Webb University invites prospective students and their families to participate in Dawg Day on Saturday, March 24 beginning at 8 a.m. in the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC).  Dawg Days are free, planned visitation days designed to share what Gardner-Webb is all about.

Dawg Days feature student-led campus tours, faculty fairs with booths representing each undergraduate department, panel discussions and Q and A sessions with current students, campus shop discounts and more.  Sessions for parents are also available on pressing topics like financial planning and student development. After the morning activities, Dawg Day participants will enjoy free lunch in the cafeteria and free admission to Gardner-Webb’s softball game against Liberty University at 1:00 p.m.

According to Jessica Brock, Gardner-Webb University’s visit coordinator, Dawg Days are an excellent resource to help students discover if Gardner-Webb is the right fit for them.

“Dawg Day is a unique opportunity for Gardner-Webb to show prospective students why this University is so special,” Brock said.  “By eating in the cafeteria and chatting with professors, touring campus and even enjoying Runnin’ Bulldogs game, prospective students and their families are immersed for an entire day in the Gardner-Webb experience.”

Registration for the March 24 Dawg Day is open until Thursday, March 22, and can be completed online.  Registration is also currently open for the final Dawg Day of the academic year on April 28.
