The Office of Admission at Fisk University announced today that it will host a Summer Open House on Tuesday, July 8, 2008. This open house gives rising seniors and local students an opportunity to learn more about Fisk’s academic offerings as well as its cultural and historic significance.
“Our prospective students will have the opportunity to learn more about what makes Fisk special,” said Fisk President Hazel R. O’Leary who will speak during the welcome luncheon. “We look forward to learning more about our prospective students as they prepare to begin their pursuit of academic excellence at Fisk.”
Several students have received acceptance for the fall 2008 semester at Fisk University. Many will have the opportunity to win one of two scholarships worth $2,500 per semester for the 2008-9 academic year during Summer Open House. To be eligible for the scholarship, students in attendance must meet the following criteria:
– Possess an official acceptance letter indicating regular admission for fall 2008
– Submit the non-refundable enrollment deposit
– Complete the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA)
Eligibility for these scholarship awards will not be extended to students who have received their institutional awards for fall 2008, however, each student in attendance who has been accepted for fall 2008 regular admission to Fisk will receive a book voucher for $100.
Prospective and newly-accepted students will also receive a tour of Fisk’s historic campus during Summer Open House, attend a course offered by the university and will receive important information on scholarships and financial aid. Students who have submitted their enrollment deposit will be able to register for fall classes.
“Fisk continues to maintain an outstanding academic reputation and the summer seems a convenient time to showcase this to prospective students and families” said Dean of Admission Keith Chandler. “This event will provide an informative but relaxed atmosphere in which prospective students can sample one of our courses and get a preview of campus life.”
