It’s the time of year when high school seniors all over the country are anxiously waiting next to the mailbox for one thing…a college admissions decision. Here at Western New England, we’ve sent out many letters containing the news that YOU could become part of the Class of 2016. Congratulations! We are so excited to meet the people whose applications we’ve been reading for the past few months. We hope that you choose to accept our invitation to become a Golden Bear!
Your enthusiasm and achievements (academic and otherwise) have impressed us. Getting to know you through your applications has been such a wonderful experience for me, a relatively new admission counselor, and the rest of my office. Now, we hope you take the time to get to know more about us. On Saturday, April 14th we have our final Open House of the year. It’s a great way to see the campus for yourself and have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff and current students. In addition, we offer a Day Visit Program in which you can shadow a current student in your major. If you’ve ever wondered what a day in the life of a WNE student is like, this is certainly the way to find out! Find out more about these programs here.
If you’ve been to campus and seen all that you could possibly want to see, we encourage you to read our blogs and check out the WNE Class of 2016 Facebook page, managed by our own Golden Bear. The Facebook forum is a space for you to find out more about your potential classmates. We hope that you ask questions about clubs, student activities and things to do/see in our area. This is going to become your second home and we want you to feel welcome before you even arrive on campus!
Again, we extend our congratulations to you and your family for all that you have achieved during the past four years. We hope that you choose Western New England as the place to make the most out of the next four. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our office. We can't wait to welcome you, the WNE Class of 2016!
