…bring May Flowers (AKA the Class of 2020!).
I am so excited for the month of April! Campus feels bustling, as 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 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/”I’m In!” card with the hashtag #HolyCross2020.
For students who want to get more involved in other events this month, here are some handy dates to know:
Wednesday, April 6: 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 17: Open House from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 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 17 to Monday, April 18: 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!
