Western New England University will host high school students and their parents at an open house on Saturday, October 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. starting in the University Commons. The event is free, but advance reservation is requested by visiting or calling 413-782-1321.

This undergraduate open house is intended for all prospective students, regardless of their year in high school. It is an opportunity to come to campus to get a sense of the University's warm and engaging community, while learning about the wide variety of academic programs and emphasis on inter-disciplinary collaboration.

Students and parents will have the chance to tour the campus and a first year residence hall, meet current students, get a general overview of the admissions and financial aid process, and have academic questions answered. The day concludes with an exhibit where students can gather more information on student clubs and activities, honors programs, athletic opportunities at both the NCAA and recreational levels, as well as hear from the Career Development Center regarding the varied internship and career opportunities students are receiving.
