University College will host its 2nd annual CollegeFest on August 29 to welcome students back to campus. The fair engages students with the college’s free services and resources. This year’s event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Student Memorial Center Promenade. Last year’s event had over 700 attendees.
The University College is committed to inclusive student success, engagement and achievement, agency in student learning and ongoing professional and personal development for sustained academic excellence. At CollegeFest, students can connect with all of the 12 departments and centers of University College:
- Center for Public Scholarship & Social Change
- Center for Civic Responsibility & Leadership
- The Career Center
- McNairy Library & Learning Forum
- Academic Advising & Student Development
- University Honors College
- University Writing Center
- Success Coaching
- Office of Learning Services
Several other departments will also be present, including:
- Office of Financial Aid
- Student Accounts
- Counseling and Human Development
- Registrar’s Office
Starting in the SMC Atrium, students can pick up a passport and visit all of the department stations between the SMC, Huntingdon House and McNairy Library. By getting a passport stamp at every station, students can then enter to win a grand prize. Each stop along the way will have games, giveaways and information on how students can engage, achieve and succeed at Millersville University.
Dough Head Waffles food truck will also be on-site for the event, and the first 500 students to pre-register on GetInvolved will receive a meal ticket for one free regular-sized wocket and a drink.
CollegeFest is free, but the number of Dough Head Waffles meal tickets is limited. Students should sign up early on GetInvolved, and they can pick up their meal tickets in the SMC Atrium during the event.
Students who cannot pre-register for the event are still encouraged to attend and complete a passport for the grand prize drawing.
