High school students, adult learners and community college students are all invited to “Meet Maryville” on Sat., Oct. 6; Sat. Nov. 10; and Sat., Feb. 2.

Hosted by Maryville College’s Admissions staff, the “Meet Maryville” Open House event is designed to help people become more familiar with the nationally recognized liberal arts college.

“We have designed ‘Meet Maryville’ so students and their parents can experience all aspects of Maryville College in just a few hours,” explained Dr. Dolph Henry, vice president for enrollment. “With that broad perspective under their belts, prospective students are then urged to return to campus for a more ‘tailored’ visit.

“On that return visit, we arrange for them to attend a class, interact with our faculty and have lunch with our students.”

The “Meet Maryville” event begins with registration at 9:30 a.m. in the Harold and Jean Lambert Recital Hall of the Clayton Center for the Arts. During these events, visitors will hear directly from MC students, faculty and staff members about the College’s core curriculum and why MC graduates are successful because of it. Visitors will then enjoy our all-you-can-eat buffet in the Margaret Ware Dining Hall of Pearsons Hall. Finally, Maryville College Ambassadors will lead Meet Maryville guests on a tour of the campus.

If you are unable to attend a “Meet Maryville” Open House event, Saturday tours will be offered at 10 a.m. on Sept. 22 and 29; Oct. 20 and 27; Nov. 3 and 17; and Dec. 1.
