Those who follow my blog since last year know that I proudly promote my campus through the Universities at Shady Grove Student Ambassadors Program. As we approach one of the most important events of the year (we offer three Open House events yearly), we anxiously plan and coordinate our crew of ambassadors to offer the very best experience for the over 500 visitors we expect to arrive on Saturday, Nov. 7th. To create a seamless experience for our visitors the ambassadors meet early to place balloons near the parking lot entrances (click here for directions to the campus), set up the sign-in tables located at the main entrance of Building III, and place the placards for the various information sessions and workshops infront of the classrooms on levels 2 and 3 in Building III (Download schedule of events).
Open House is your chance to learn and ask questions. Students unsure of which degree path they want to take can meet with counselors and narrow down their choices, then they can attend a workshop to learn how to write a perfect application essay. Parents can discover scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and learn about the many scholarships and grants offered only here at USG. Benefit from application fee waivers and sit in on information sessions about your program. My favorite part of Open House is leading the tours of our campus, it is a great way to get to know the USG experience from the prospective of a current student. We meet in front of the entrance to the Priddy Library and I promise they will be the best 30 minutes of you day.
Take advantage of this opportunity by waking early on Saturday Nov. 7th and coming down to the Universities at Shady Grove. Be the first one here, doors open at 9:00 am and wrap-up by 12:00 pm. See you there!
