Weekly Updates!

Reminders and updates for this week:
  • Check the "Chapel Hosting" tab
  • Sign-up for Overnight hosting and Open House day tours/greeting!
    • The October 18th and 28th overnights are posted - we need quite a few hosts, especially for the 28th!

Thank you for a great day at the Open House!
We welcomed 298 students to campus!
    Thanks Sierra, Devin, & Dani for a great panel yesterday!


  • When talking about language requirements on tour:
    • Instead of saying - the language placement test/study abroad allows you to "get out of taking a language", be sure to say that:
      • the language placement test "allows you to be placed in the level of a language that is right for you"
      • study abroad/cross-cultural courses "allow you to fulfill your language requirement by being immersed in another culture".
    • We always want to avoid speaking about ways to "get out of" courses, because that communicates that they are not valuable.
