Keyword: behind the scenes

In Admissions, the fall is known as “travel season”. Our staff spends weeks meeting prospective students during high school visits and college fairs. The end of November and month of December look very different. This time period is often referred to as “reading season”. Our staff spends most of their time in the office reading applications and participating in Admissions Committee. In fact if you have recently tried to call or email a member of our staff, you may have received a message stating they were in the office but participating in Committee. Admission materials are all stored online, so our staff is glued to their computer screens. We always make sure to take some breaks though - keep reading to see what really happens during reading season....Click here to read more.

Throughout the fall, our admissions counselors have been all over the country attending high school visits, college fairs, and conducting interview nights. We call this time of year “travel season”.  Each of our counselors travels to a particular region that we call our “territory”. In the fall, we visit schools in our territory and in the winter and spring we will review all the applications from that area. You can find the contact information for your admissions representative online. We typically leave the office for our travel season in early September, and most of our staff won’t return to the office full time until November. As our travel season is winding down, here is a recap of what a day might look like during travel season. ...Click here to read more.

Before and After Oct Open House

Pictured above is the Owings Mills Gymnasium during set-up and below is the full crowd at the start of the program.

The Admissions Office hosted our second fall Open House on Saturday, October 17. Over 280 prospective freshmen and transfer students from 12 states and Washington, D.C. spent the day learning about the university. At an Open House, students hear about what it is like to be a student at SU, learn admissions and financial aid procedures, attend a faculty-led academic presentation, and take campus tours. Guests also eat lunch in our dining hall and students who attend are entered into a drawing to win a suite in a residence hall for one semester. Needless to say, it is a great opportunity to visit campus. Luckily, there is another Open House being hosted on Saturday, November 21. Learn more and register for that session. While guests enjoy learning about SU, our staff spends the day making sure everything runs smoothly....Click here to read more.
