While the weather outside was cold and dreary on Saturday, the feeling inside Millersville University’s Admitted Student Expo was warm and excited. Approximately 2,000 people, including admitted students and their families, attended the day-long event. They had the opportunity to attend different informational sessions, explore campus and take their placement tests in anticipation of joining the MU community in the fall.
The expo ran from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on April 7 and included informational sessions on topics including academic programs, the Honors College, resources for transfer students and financial aid. Admitted students were able to meet and greet with faculty and current students in the departments they plan to enroll in.
“I was really impressed by our future Marauders. They’re incredibly bright and talented, approximately 50 percent of all admitted students have a 3.5 GPA or higher, they’re excited and I can’t wait until they’re on campus this fall,” says Brian Hazlett, vice president for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management. “The expo was a great success with many University faculty, staff and students participating and giving these future Marauders a good idea of what it’s like to live and learn at the ‘Ville.”
This cohort of admitted students is a diverse group hailing from 34 different states and 57 different counties across Pennsylvania. The cohort of admitted international students represents seven countries. The majors that are most popular with this group are biology, business, elementary education, psychology, computer science and applied engineering & technology management.
“This new group of admitted students will make great a great addition to the Millersville University community,” says director of admissions Katy Ferrier. “We hope that all of the students who attended the Admitted Student Expo found what they need to make the right choice for their academic future. We hope that choice is Millersville and we can’t wait to see them in the fall!”
