…bring May flowers (a.k.a. the Class of 2019)!
I am so excited for the month of April! The days are getting warmer and longer, the snow is finally melting, and admitted students have been visiting campus, calling the office, and writing on Facebook! Now that admission decisions have been made available online and mailed to students’ homes, seniors are working to figure out where they will spend the next four years. To help them make that choice, we in the Admissions Office (with the help of our Social Media interns) will be tweeting fun facts and interesting information about the College throughout the month. We also encourage students (both admitted and current) to tweet us a picture of themselves wearing Holy Cross gear or holding up their acceptance letter with the hashtag #SaderSelfie. We kicked off the campaign earlier today if you would like to see our photo!
For students who want to get more involved in other events this month, here are some handy dates to know:
Wednesday, April 8: Online Chat from 7 to 10 p.m. ET — This event is a great way for accepted students to talk to one another, as well as chat with admission counselors and current students!
Sunday, April 19: Open House from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET — Please come to the Hill to get a glimpse of the academic and social life at Holy Cross! Activities will include a student life fair with representatives from clubs and sports teams; information sessions on topics such as career planning, our pre-health program, and internships; and current student panels for admitted students and families.
Sunday, April 19 to Monday, April 20: Overnight Program — After the Open House, accepted students are invited to stay on campus for the night and then attend morning classes the following day.
Friday, May 1: the national enrollment deadline — The day when seniors need to send in their deposits!
For students who want even more, we have a beautiful virtual tour, as well as a number of other great videos on our YouTube page. And please, feel free to reach out to us on Facebook, where you will also find our Admitted Students group!
Cheers to spring!
