VSU Welcomes Prospective Students to Campus

VALDOSTA -- Valdosta State University will hold visitation day on March 27 for prospective juniors, seniors and their families to explore the campus and learn about the college’s academic and social opportunities.

Visitors will take one-hour walking tours, which will feature residence halls, classrooms, the Student Recreation Center, and the new Student Union. They also will enjoy a delicious, healthy lunch in Palms Dining Center, VSU's primary dining facility. Guests can meet with program representatives from 70 different majors and the offices of admissions, housing, financial aid and student life.

Director of Admissions Walter Peacock said visitation days are important for prospective students inquiring about a variety of topics. They also allow families to become more familiar with the campus and its atmosphere.

“Visitation days present several opportunities. Students can ask questions and get information on admissions, housing, academic departments and student organizations all under one roof," Peacock said. "It is also a great day to interact with current students, other prospective students, and of course our faculty and staff. You will be able to get a lot done in a short period of time.”

No reservations or fees are required for prospective students and their guests to attend a visitation day. Participants should meet at 10 a.m. at the VSU P.E. Complex, on the corner of Baytree Road and Sustella Avenue. Parking is available beside the P.E. Complex or in the Oak Street parking lot.
