Preview Days are an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to make an impact on our prospective students and their families.

Augusta University welcomes prospective students to Winter Preview Day

Augusta University’s first Undergraduate Preview Day of 2020 is coming up on Monday, Feb. 17. This event is one of the largest Admissions events of the year, and is Augusta University’s opportunity to showcase academic programs and student services to prospective students.

At the event, current high school students and their families will sit in on academic program information sessions, take tours of student housing, learn about financial aid and scholarships, and get tips and tricks on applying for admission. Students can also learn about the Honors Program, undergraduate research, and pathways to medical and dental school.

The event begins at 9 a.m. with academic department browsing, and the opening assembly starts at 10 a.m. in the Maxwell Theatre.

When the assembly concludes around 11 a.m., guests will break out into their academic program sessions throughout the Summerville Campus. Then, at noon, guests will have lunch in the Jaguar Student Activities Center.

About 200 students plus their guests are anticipated at this event. These prospective students are mostly from the southeast, but there are registrants from as far away as Tennessee and Pennsylvania.

Jacqui Duca, the director of Academic Admissions, recognizes that Preview Day is a great opportunity to show off the close-knit AU community.

“Preview Days allow faculty, staff and students to make an impact on our prospective students and their families. It’s a day for you to make an impression and share your personal stories about Augusta University, and perhaps make a difference in a student’s college choice.”

Admissions events like Preview Day are crucial to propelling the university to its 16×30 enrollment goal.
