Public Service Announcement: Attention Future University Students, Concord to Host “Mountain Lion” Open House, Saturday, March 19

Athens, W.Va. – Concord University will host its annual spring Mountain Lion Open House on Saturday, March 19, 2005. Registration for the event starts at 9:30 a.m. in the Alexander Fine Arts Center lobby.

The Mountain Lion Open House provides a unique opportunity for university-bound students to learn about financial aid, academic programs and meet some of the award-winning faculty who teach at Concord University.

Lunch will be provided at no charge to the university-bound students and their parents. Ambassadors—Concord University students who volunteer their time—will provide tours of the Athens campus, and share insights about life at Concord.

Michael Curry, vice president for admissions and financial aid: “The Mountain Lion Open House will give any interested student a sound overview of all aspects of college life—the general level of academic rigor, a tour of the Campus Beautiful, face-to-face interaction with professors in the student’s areas of interest, direct financial aid counseling and an opportunity to receive a free SAT prep. The food isn’t bad either!”
