FLORENCE – Francis Marion University is preparing for a near record number of visitors when it welcomes prospective students and their families during its spring Open House on Saturday, Feb. 27.
Nearly 400 potential students are already registered for the university’s Open House, with most expected to bring their families with them. The university expects to host more than 500 guests.
The day will begin with registration and a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. in the McNair Science Building lobby, and a welcome will be given at 9:30 a.m.
An information fair will run from 8 to 9:30 a.m. and three consecutive information sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Session topics will include academic programs, financial assistance, residence life, campus services, admissions and more. The information fair will provide an informal way to gather information and ask questions, and will highlight support services available to students.
From 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., tours of the campus and residence halls will be given. A social and wrap-up will follow the tour.
Open House, held four times annually, is a great way for prospective students to meet faculty, staff, administrators and current students – all while learning about FMU programs and services.
