MC to host two virtual ‘Meet Maryville’ events this Fall

Aug. 26, 2020

Maryville College will host virtual “Meet Maryville” preview day events on Sat., Sept. 19 and Sat., Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Hosted by Maryville College’s Admissions Office, the virtual events are designed to help prospective students and their families get to know the nationally ranked college known for providing students with an educational experience that prepares them for anything – to address the hard problems, to connect with people all over the globe and to succeed in any career.

The virtual events will include several informative sessions delivered through videos, including an overview of student life, financial aid and admissions; virtual campus tours; and a showcase featuring representatives from academic departments and campus organizations.

Attendees also will have the opportunity to chat with current students through a virtual chat option that allows participants to ask questions throughout the event.

“We regret that we are not able to host these events on campus this fall, due to COVID-19 restrictions,” said Alayne Bowman, the College’s vice president for admissions and financial aid. “Our virtual ‘Meet Maryville’ events include the same great information provided during our on-campus preview day events. Online presentations will help attendees learn more about our programs of study, campus life, financial aid and scholarships, and a virtual tour will showcase our beautiful campus.”
